Where can I find out what I need at my training establishment to meet the criteria for a Licence or Permit?
All applications are accompanied by full and detailed Guidance Notes which can be found with the links for the application forms. The Guidance Notes will provide you with information outlining the minimum standards an applicant is required to demonstrate to meet the established licensing criteria, including those requirements for gallops and schooling facilities.
If you have any concerns that your premises may not meet BHA’s requirements, it may be possible to arrange for a preliminary inspection to obtain advice and guidance, prior to you making an application.
With regard to general equine care (e.g. stabling), BHA is a member of the National Equine Welfare Council (NEWC) and as such, guidance in this regard can be found in the Equine Welfare Compendium available from the NEWC.
