12 Week Intensive

A course designed to suit you

This course is perfect for students who are competent riders that already have sound practical care experience in order to gain their BHS Stage 3 Complete Horsemanship in only 12 weeks. Less experienced riders are still able to take this intensive course but they would typically choose to concentrate on achieving BHS Stage 1 and BHS Stage 2. Then they may decide to opt for further training to achieve BHS Stage 3.

Testimonial – 12 week intensive course

“I managed to make my dream job reality after my 3 month course with Wellington Riding . I achieved BHS Stage 1 , BHS Stage 2 and the PTT level thanks to the great lessons I took from really capable and enthusiastic coaches . It has been a super experience that laid the foundation of my career . I would suggest this programme for anyone wanting to get into the equestrian world . I now travel all over Europe working with GPx riders and professionally training dressage.”
