Applications for the British Horse Society’s (BHS) Instructor Development Scholarship are open until 28 October.
The BHS is the largest provider of equestrian education and qualifications in the UK, and launched the scholarship program this year to increase the number of BHS Instructors across the country.
Alex Copeland, Director of Education at the BHS said: “We are very proud to launch the Instructors Development Scholarship, supporting the next generation of instructors and coaches so they can reach their goals”.
The BHS will support the costs of training and examinations, and the first year’s membership as an Accredited Professional Coach.
It can be financially difficult to reach the top levels of the equestrian industry, and this can often be a stumbling block for many. It is hoped that programs like the BHS Instructor Development Scholarship will be able to remove these barriers.
If funding is preventing you, or someone you know from furthering their career, then visit the BHS website (www.bhs.org.uk) to download an application form.
Successful applicants will be selected by a panel consisting of BHS Centre proprietors, BHS staff and leading industry experts.
