CONGRATULATIONS to Henry Church Huxley (BCH Forest) on passing your “A” Test and with Distinction.
Very well deserved.
A few words from Henry himself to Meg:
“I did it, I passed my A Test with Distinction!
I have been focusing the majority of this summer’s training around preparing for this test; I have used all training that area 5 put on, as well as sourcing a lot myself. I went to Talland for a training day, which was paid for by Area 5, which I then combined with private training with instructors from Talland too. I also visited and rode at many private and competition yards all round the area.
The test was held at Talland, and I rode a variety of different horses on the day. The day was long and busy, but I felt that I had a good rapport with the horses I rode, and the examiners helped ease my nerves.
I would promote doing the A Test to anyone thinking about it, I have loved doing the extensive training that I have done, and I am delighted with the result!
Onwards and upwards!
Thank you for putting so much training on, it definitely helped.”
