**New Evening Training Courses**

We are running a course of evening lectures and practical stable management designed to prepare participants for their BHS Stage II exams.  These will be with Paula Cullen BHSII and Complete Stage 4 APC. 

The course is also open to any regular rider over 16 who wants to improve their practical stable management knowledge. The course will begin on Tuesday 22nd March and run every Tuesday evening from 7 to 9 pm, for 8 weeks (excluding 26th April).

You can view and book the course online by clicking the link below.

This course will cover the topics required for BHS Stage 2 sign-off but it does not include lunge theory or practicals which will be a separate module. Please note that while the aim is to be able to sign off on BHS skills record we will only do so if we are happy the relevant skills/knowledge have been reached/demonstrated.

The course is not suitable for those without experience of being around horses and tacking up etc.   If you have any queries, then please contact the office for advice on 01 2863778 or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..


The Centre is approved by both the BHS and AIRE to train students up the BHS Stage IV Coach standard.

Brennanstown is also an Exam centre for the BHS, and one of the few in the country which hosts Stage IV and Stage IV Coach exams. Exams take place four times each year – April, June and September for Stages I, II, Stage II Teach, III and Stage III Teach, and October for Stage IV and Stage IV Coach.


We run career courses for those wishing to take the British Horse Society Stage Exams. The Course begins in September each year but it is possible to join in after commencement, subject to the standard being appropriate.

These are full time courses which combine riding lessons, lectures and demonstrations in horse care with work experience in the yard allowing students to develop their work skills. This combination properly prepares them for a career in the industry.

Brennanstown’s pass rate in these exams is excellent and any student choosing Brennanstown to work towards their BHS exams can be confident of a well structured and professionally run course.

Short term courses are also run and to see a list of what's coming up, click here.
