BHS Cloud

There is a new BRC online member only area that all riding clubs now have access to.

It’s called the ‘BHS Cloud’ and will be a useful tool for all riding clubs, committees and members used for the sharing of BRC ‘member only’ information and documents.

BRC Datasheets and other useful Information will now be found on this new Cloud, along with some new Datasheets that we have been asked for by our membership.

BRC will send email alerts out to all clubs when new content is added so the riding club are able to keep up to date with all BRC new information.

All BRC Clubs and Centres have been set up with their own specific username and password and as a member you will have been e-mailed this information

The Cloud can be accessed here: https://cloud.bhs.org.uk

BHS Safety Conference

The 2015 BHS Safety Conference is taking place on 15 September. The conference aims to meet a spectrum of needs irrespective of your interest or involvement in the equestrian field.

The conference takes place at the Royal Veterinary College, Hawkshead Campus, Hertfordshire. This year it focusses completely on ’Fire’ and its implications on all areas of equestrian life from stable, transport and at events. Presentations will come from over 10 members of the fire service, each with expertise in different areas, plus a further presentation by Professor Josh Slater MRCVS who will look at the impact on the horse itself.

The fire service team will be led by Station Fire Officer Jim Green who has international recognition for his support of all equestrians safety from transport to stable.

Tickets are still available at £30.00 for a full day at the Conference including lunch and will include a copy of Guidelines for Fire Safety in Equine & Agricultural Premises, by Harry Paviour for each delegate. (worth over £30)

BHS Participation Project

Dear Affiliated British Riding Club

Come and be part of the new BHS Participation Project!

The BHS are running a project in conjunction with the BEF and Sport England to get more people riding and participating at and with their local affiliated riding club, BHS Approved centre, livery yard or registered instructor.

The project has been set up following an extremely successful pilot project, which ran the Essential Horse Knowledge Certificate (EHKC) and Progressive Riding Test (PRT) courses, we are now in the position to roll this out nationally. The aim is to create an informal community through BHS Approved Livery Yards, Riding Centres, British Riding Clubs and Centres, providing horse owners with access to a network of advice, knowledge and education, enabling them to gain confidence and ride more frequently. By creating a community, participants will also become more involved in social activities with like-minded people.

Although this project is mainly aimed at people 26 years and over, it is open to all people, of all ages wishing to become more involved, gain a qualification or just increase their confidence to help them pursue new ways of enjoying horses.

We are encouraging our Essential Horse Knowledge Certificate (EHKC), Progressive Riding Tests (PRT) and the Riding School Certificate of Competence, but activities such as Pilates for riders, yoga, zumba, circuit training, rallies and camps anything that gets people participating and enjoying themselves with horses.

Any centre/club who is interested in running a course will be provided with a toolkit which contains useful books and posters to help get the courses up and running. Any participant who attends one of the courses being run as part of the participation project will also received a tailored toolkit to assist them to get started on their course. The BHS have waived any registration/certification fees for EHKC and PRT courses.

I have attached some FAQ’s that will explain in a bit more detail what is involved and the benefits of being part of the project.

Please have a read of the attached information and if you think that the project is of interest to you, please get in touch and we are more than happy to give you a ring or come out and explain the project in more detail.
