British Equestrian Tourism examinations for Assistant and Ride Leader and Holiday Riding Centre Manager.
These qualifications 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).
These qualifications are very relevent to todays Riding School which is becoming more aware of their commitment to the safety of both rider and horse, and the need to look after their clients in a more professional competent and friendly way.
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 tourists who ride horses on holiday, 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.
