The British Horse Society (BHS) has just announced the nine winners of their brand new scholarship program, which provides a path for young individuals into the equestrian industry.
The BHS wants to inspire individuals who can make a difference to the future of the industry and through this scholarship the BHS's aim is to increase the number of qualified BHS Assistant Instructors (BHSAI). The BHS will support the costs of training, examinations and the first year as an Accredited Professional coach as part of the scholarship.
“Education is at the heart of The British Horse Society. As more and more people turn to riding as a leisure pursuit, we want to make sure they have access to the best instruction,” said BHS Chief Executive, Lynn Petersen.
