And get on the ladder of industry led qualifications.
The Test can be done in-house and its main objective is to prove the competence of a student to instruct safely under supervision. Getting the basics correct means that riders can progress; sometimes this aspect is not always given sufficient time or respect. The safe practice of everything from the rider`s first introduction to the horse to teaching canter is something that needs to be seen - not just written or talked about and in keeping with all ABRS Tests and exams, the criteria are practical.
Properly trained staff are our greatest assets but they need to be able to prove their training. The Initial Teaching Test will give them a chance to do this and encourage them to go on to the ABRS UKCC Level 2.
ABRS Test 6 + R & RS + Lunge Unit → ABRS ITT → UKCC L2
We would like to hear from any ARBS schools who are interested in holding an ITT day. The ABRS school will need to have a minimum of three students wishing to take part before the day can go ahead. Properly trained staff are our greatest assets but they need to be able to prove their training. Please contact The Association of British Riding Schools for further information at firstname.lastname@example.org or 01403 790294.
Pre-requisites and how the day will run can be found here. You will require your ABRS username and password to access this page.
