British Equestrian Tourism Examinations
British Equestrian Tourism
Assistant ,Ride Leader and Holiday Riding Centre Manager Qualifications
These examinations offer a new qualification for employees who escort riders on hacks or treks, whether on a part time,full time or occasional basis. With international recognition they should improve chances of employment worldwide,as well as in the UK,and are very relevant to today's Riding Schools,which are becoming more aware of their commitment to the safety of both rider ,horse and employee, and the need to look after their clients in a more professional,competent and friendly way. They are jointly promoted by the British Horse Society,the Trekking and Riding Society of Scotland,the Wales Trekking and Riding Association and the Association of Irish Riding Establishments as British Equestrian Tourism (BET) and are internationally recognised by the Federation Internationale Touriste Equestre (FITE).
Working alongside existing BHS qualifications these exams are more in tune with the hacking/trekking side of the riding school . British Equestrian Tourism is about looking after visitors and tourists who ride horses on holidays,short breaks or just hack out at weekends, riders and non-riders alike.Our qualifications are designed to help ensure that ride escorts have the knowledge and ability to provide for the safety of riders and horses on hacks, that they can look after horses in their care, staff in their charge, the stable yard, business and clients, to a high and internationally recognised standard and, that they have a certificate to show it.
