To achieve Unit 4: Stage 4 Senior Ride for Training Eventing you will need to demonstrate your ability to ride and confidently handle a variety of horses on the flat and over fences.

Horses may be young, green or sharp and you will be expected to analyse the scales of training and provide in-depth explanations, analysis and solutions on training horses.

This unit will assess your knowledge and practical experience in understanding a horse’s performance, your ability to discuss both good and bad performance and suggest schooling methods for improvement.

You will:

  • Understand the training of horses from birth to riding away and further to competition at Elementary level
  • Understand how to train horses to show jump to 1.10m and novice horse trials
  • Be able to prepare for, ride and assess horses to develop their way of going, including:
    • Inexperienced horses
