Viv completed her BHS stages 1–3 qualifications part-time before making the move to working with horses full-time in a livery yard. She gained a BHS scholarship and then went on to complete her BHS APC Stage 4 Senior Coach in Complete Horsemanship.
“Working towards the BHS complete horsemanship qualification was a great experience as I really loved combining training and work. The system is flexible enough to fit around your lifestyle and the complete horsemanship route provides a real depth of knowledge and understanding of horses as well as allowing me to develop as a coach.
I would thoroughly recommend the BHS as a career path for anyone with a keen interest in equestrianism. Working with horses is hard work but it’s also very rewarding!”
