The Skills Record is a booklet designed to help support you as you develop through your career. It also provides a way of recording your achievements as you learn new skills. Your Skills Record will assist you as you undertake training and ensure that you are fully prepared for your assessments, as you progress through the BHS Career Pathways (Complete Horsemanship Stages 1-4).

Your Skills Record will be sent to you upon your first booking on the BHS Career Pathway Stages 1-3. You will then receive the Stage 4 Skills Record upon booking your first Stage 4 assessment. Please look after your Skills Record as it contains a wealth of information to guide and support you. It also has relevant sign off pages to confirm you are ready for assessment and necessary templates for coach endorsements.

Your Skills Record must be signed off by an Accredited Professional (or Approved Centre Coach) with the relevant qualification at least one level higher than what is being signed off.

You will need to take your Skills Record to your assessments. You can download and read the Skills Record (link below) so you have an idea of what is required. 

Skills Record Update during Covid-19

Due to the BHS office being closed and staff working from home, we are unable to post out Skills Records to candidates on their first booking. Therefore, please download the copy below for your use. Will will accept a printed copy for your assessments during 2020. We will also accept an email from your coach confirming signing off of a 'Ready for Assessment' or 'Coach Endorsement' if it not possible to sign your skills record in person. The coach must confirm their name and APC number, the candidate's name and BHS number, the section they are signing off and the date of sign off. We will be able to accept coach emails for assessments in 2020.

Alternatively, you can purchase a Stages 1-3 Skills Record for £5 from our online bookshop. Orders are being fulfilled and posted.
