Stage 3 Riding Out 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.

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 lead a group of riders on a long ride out, which may include breaks or an overnight stop
  • Be able to select and use relevant equipment and manage your use of time according to industry practice
