Each stage of the British Horse Society Assessments now require a sign off section that needs to be completed in advance of your final assessment day, stating that you are ready for the final assessment. Coach Endorsement Days will allow you to be observed or questioned by a professional in the industry who will assess you against specific criteria for the qualification. You skills record needs to be bought with you to this day. If you meet industry standards on this day your skills record will be signed off.
