The Stage 4 Senior Rider is for those with an established career in the equestrian industry. This demonstrates a competence to take responsibility for a horse’s training and development.
This recognises your ability as a rider to train horses and manage their work. A Senior Rider will have the skills to train horses for equestrian competition work within a chosen discipline - this would include management of day-to-day activity and maintaining horse fitness. This provides an essential stepping stone to Stage 5 Ride, as well as an established component of Stage 4 Complete Horsemanship.
Stage 4 Senior Rider is an essential platform to a training role within the horse world.
