- BHS Professional Rider Pathway (Jump) will develop your jump work and support a career within showjumping and horse trials
Employment as a work rider will allow you to work in a school environment as directed by a trainer, or ride independently to enhance the role of a groom by assisting with the fittening of horses and their preparation for competition.
