Ride Leader Level 3 provides a benchmark within the equine industry for those who would like to work in a commercial equestrian environment.

Alongside taking care of horses, staff and clients, this award will provide you with the knowledge of accepted protocols within a commercial environment, which includes the responsibility of a centre in the owner’s absence. 

Important Information: this award will be updated in 2019. If you are sitting any Ride Out or Ride Leader assessment in 2018 please contact us to ensure you are working from the correct assessment criteria.

This assessment will allow you to demonstrate through practical tasks an industry required level of competence and autonomy, to enable you to enter a more senior role within an equestrian tourism business.

You will:

  • Be able to manage your work safely and efficiently, while undertaking a higher level of responsibility
  • Show the application of skills and knowledge which relate to the care and management of horses, clients and training of staff through a range of tasks with minimal supervision
  • Be able to select and use relevant equipment and manage your use of time according to industry practice
