British Horse Society Awards Bursary to Instructors

Six students have been awarded with BHS Training Bursaries this year worth a total of £2,500. The BHS Bursary aims to encourage Registered BHSAIs to gain the Intermediate Instructor Certificate. These run from 1 January 2006 to 31 December 2007.

Fees for the Horse Knowledge and Care, Riding Stage 4 examinations and the BHS Intermediate Teaching Test are covered thanks to the Bursary.

Kay Livesey from Lancashire was one of the deserving winners. She is senior instructor at Draughton Heights Riding Centre and is a British Riding Club Welfare Advisor. She enjoys hacking and schooling her own horse. Kay competes in local hack classes.

A bursary was also awarded to Victoria Gladwin, who owns her own Endurance horse and has handled competition horses in the UK and in Hong Kong and Rachel Wilson, who has taken a horse on loan and intends to compete British Eventing Intro and Pre-Novice in 2006 while working towards her Stage IV.

Applicants submitted a current CV with covering letter and nominated two referees, one of whom had to be the proprietor of a BHS Approved Riding Centre. They also needed to be a BHS Registered Instructor and to hold a full BHSAI Certificate.

The recipients of the Bursaries are:

Rachel Wilson, West Sussex
Kay Livesey, Lancashire
Louise Emma Pearson, West Yorkshire
Vicky Gladwin, Cornwall
Jo Williams, Wiltshire
Claire Greenan, Co. Fermanagh
