Making A Difference To Riders and Schools


About the ABRS

Founded in 1954, it runs Britain's longest-established Riding School Approval Scheme and promotes participation by persons in the United Kingdom in healthy recreation in horse riding through education and in providing advice to riding schools.

Become ABRS approved

If you belong to the ABRS your clients can be satisfied that you offer the highest standards of teaching, that their health and safety are a priority and that your horses and ponies are given the best possible care. Being an ABRS approved centre offers many benefits for your yard or livery.
