British Horse Society

The British Horse Society was founded in 1947, and we have grown over the past 70 years to become the largest and most influential equestrian charity in the UK with over 115,000  members. We aim to protect and promote the interests of all horses and those who care about them, including the 3.5 million people in the UK who ride or who drive a horse-drawn carriage.

Whether you want to gain professional, industry recognised qualifications to spring-board your equine career or you simply want to learn more about horses and improve your skills for personal achievement there’s a pathway for you.

Our world-leading BHS Career Pathways offer you the opportunity to progress your career with horses and learn practical, real-world skills within a structured platform. As part of your journey we’re here to guide, advise and support you through every stage of your development towards getting equine jobs and equine careers in the future.

If you are not working towards a career with horses, and simply want to develop your knowledge and skills or improve your confidence, our Challenge Awards are for you. Learn all about horse care, lungeing and riding from the basics through to more advanced techniques.
