L5 Student Partakes in Equestrian Course

Monday 19th May 2014

Avid rider Sophie, a L5 day student at Queen Anne’s, has been completing a series of training sessions at Checkendon Equestrian Centre in order to pass the British Horse Society Riding and Road Safety Examination.

Following the completion of her training, which focuses on road safety when riding horses on the roads, Sophie, 15 from Reading, will then sit the examination, using Checkendon’s own horses, in order to show the skills that she has learnt during training.

Explaining the training and the examination, Sophie said, “There are three stages to the examination process; Theory, which will be questions covering the Highway Code, the Riding and Roadcraft Manual, and the rules of riding on the roads; the Simulated Road Route, ridden in a field or school to test the ability to ride safely on the road and the Road Route, where riders, once they have passed the first two sections, complete a route on the roads to show competence in dealing with vehicles and other hazards.

If I pass the British Horse Society Riding and Road Safety examination, it will qualify me for any further BHS stage examinations and all the Pony Club test levels from C test upwards.”

We wish Sophie the very best of luck for her examination.
