Training & Exams


Training for an exam at Lakefield Equestrian CentreLakefield Equestrian Centre is a British Horse Society approved ‘Where to Train’ centre. Training for British Horse Society stages I – 4 , PTT and IT is available as well and NVQ’s Level’s 2 & 3 can be arranged with a resident assessor on site.  We excel at catering for  the needs of the individual and catering to  your personal requirements.


We take up to 8 working students at any one time usually on a one-year contract but we will take students on shorter courses if we have a vacancy. Anyone interested in becoming one of our working students is invited to come for an informal interview. This gives the prospective student an opportunity to have a look around and see the school during a normal working day.

Working students are expected to live in during their course time and receive an allowance towards self-catering. The school will pay for exams taken during the course.

The list below is intended only as a guide and will vary slightly from day to day depending on which examination the student is studying for and whether horses are stabled or at grass.
