Tack - the right tack and the correct fitting and use of tack plays a very important part in the welfare of the ridden horse and subsequently the success of the partnership with the rider. Coaches and riders may not be experts in the world of Saddlery or Lorinery, but they need an understanding of where and why things might be wrong and to have sufficient knowledge to know where changes might help or referral to an expert in the field is required.
Sue Pain, a consultant with Horse Bit Fit and Janet Legg of the Society of Master Saddlers will guide you through the day.
This training will count as CPD for BHS Registered Instructors.
Cost: £30 BHS Registered Instructors / £35 Others
Terms and Conditions
All British Horse Society South West training courses are checked for viability around ten working days before each course date. Any that have insufficient numbers may be cancelled. In this case, delegates who have booked will receive a full refund or free course transfer should another suitable course be pending.
Course fees are non-refundable if the delegate cancels in less than ten working days from the course start date, without a medical certificate. If a medical certificate is provided, it must be received at our office within five working days of the course date. All cancellations need to be in writing.
If a course is cancelled, each delegate will be phoned or an email sent, advising them of the cancellation and offered either a full refund or free transfer should another suitable course be pending.
It is important that each delegate ensures that we have their correct contact details. This must include a telephone number with an answering service. If messages are left for candidates regarding a course cancellation, or if we are unable to leave a message and delegates arrive at a venue for a course that has been cancelled, any expenses incurred by them are their own responsibility.
In the event of adverse weather conditions, a decision regarding cancellation will be made the day before the course is due to start. If the course is cancelled, each candidate will be notified by phone.
There is a surcharge of £10 for bookings made within one week prior to the start date of all courses run by the BHS South West Region.
