BHS Approved Centre status means that our equestrian centre is inspected and approved by the British Horse Society. All BHS centres are regularly inspected to ensure they meet high standards of safety, horse welfare and tuition. Three levels of grading are used: Approved (A), Commended (C) and Highly Commended (HC).
For added peace of mind, it also means that our centre is insured for public liability and complies with the latest health and safety and safeguarding legislation.
