BHS Ride Safe Training Day - Bridgwater & Taunton College

Course Overview

This course is for all riders, from beginners to performance, and anyone wishing to complete their Stage 1 Ride career pathway. Ride Safe is a co-requisite of the BHS Stage 1 Ride award. This course is also aimed at those wanting to learn more about road safety in order to minimise the risk involved when riding on the roads.

Our professional Ride Safe Trainer will guide you through every stage of your preparation towards your Ride Safe Award assessment and sign off you Ride Safe Guide.

You will be trained on the following learning outcomes:

  • Identify the rules in the Highway Code specific to horse riders
  • Know how to ride out safely
  • Be able to ride a horse in an enclosed area and out on the road

Progression Options

We are holding a BHS Ride Safe Assessment at Cannington Equestrian Centre
