Obviously you need papers?
If so what ones?
Where would you go to train for it?

I did look on the BHS website but I don't have a clue what im looking for, what I need to find is somewere around here that will let your train there for it.

My best mate is an RI, takes a long time to do all the qualifications and I think it costs a fair bit to get through all the exams etc. x

I'm a qualified RI. Was a longggg time ago that I did my exams etc and I know it has all changed a lot since. Best bet is to get in touch with the BHS and find out what centres near you actually do the BHS exams. It needs to be a approved centre which will then normally offer some kind of training courses for the stages.

Amanda is right, it is expensive and takes a long time to train up for them all. It's not just practical, you got the theory side of it as well :)

you dont acutally need any qualifications at all.
you can do the bhs exams but you will find that a lot of ri have no qulifications and some of the best arent :)

My YO was thinking about qualifying as an instructor. She has 30 years experience and didn't want to play good money to learn the basic horse care stuff she already knows.

Could she just do the RI part of it?

As far as I am aware (as I said, long time since I did my exams and I know it has changed), you do have to start with your stage one and work your way up. You can't just go and do your PTT, you have to have stage one, two and R&R first

you dont pay to learn you can pay to be on various courses as like a refresher course to brush up but you can just go and do the exams without being taught
