Here at Fiddlers Green Stud we train many candidates on a daily basis for exam preperation, general stable management and equitation. Being in a competition environment the knowledge given with us will set you up for a good career in the equine industry. Whether you are looking for a full time working pupil placement or weekly structured training we will endeavor to give you a solid start to your career.
FGStud holds weekly evening courses throughout the year aimed at canditates wishing to take their BHS Stage 1, 2 and 3 care. And for those owners / riders who want to learn more about caring for their horse and get a certificate which recognises this, there is the Horse Owners Certificate Levels 1, 2 and 3.
For more specialised training from stage 4 and above we often run training days to accomodate this.
For all courses please look on the events page to find out more.
All courses are held at FGStud with Alex Wyatt BHSI.
The courses are fairly intensive and cover all the syllabus neccessary to pass your relevent exam.Below are the course diaries for Horse Owners and Stage training courses.
The Horse Owners Certificate is also a BHS initiative, aimed specifically at first time owners and owners who want to extend their knowledge. These courses run along side the Stage course and a written paper is set and marked, by Alex, at the end of the course. The paper covers the subjects covered throughout the course and if the pass mark (of 60%) is attained then the candidate will receive a certificate which recognises this.
Alex is also available to hold courses at your own establishment. Please call 07752712915 to discuss your requirements
