We’re delighted to be working closely with key industry bodies to ensure our employers and apprentices benefit from the latest tools, guidance, and knowledge that the equine sector has to offer.
The British Horse Society
We’re proud to announce that we have partnered with The British Horse Society (BHS), who are one of the largest and most influential equestrian charities in the UK. We’re working closely to address the present skills gap within the equine industry. This partnership enables our apprentices to combine their apprenticeship training with the BHS’s prestigious qualifications.
This collaboration provides our learners with the unique opportunity to access discounted, direct entry to BHS Stages assessments as they approach the end of their apprenticeship.
Learners who gain direct entry to their BHS assessments within 6 months of completion will receive a 40% discount on their assessment fees, comprised of 20% discount from Haddon Training and 20% discount from the BHS.*
*This offer is only available to Haddon Training apprentices completing an apprenticeship in England.
The BHS Stages qualifications are perfect for individuals who enjoy caring for and managing the welfare of horses. The assessments include a mix of practical training, workshops, and events.
You can find out more about our partnership with the BHS here.

We have a long-standing partnership with the British Grooms Association (BGA) for our apprentices and the Equestrian Employers Association (EEA) for our employers.
