On the 30th April 2008 the law for new Transport certificates came into force. Since this date you must have achieved the necessary qualification or you could be stopped and face a fine and/or prosecution. See Horse and Hound regular news articles about people being stopped. If you transport horses with the potential for "economic gain" This legislation effects YOU. This includes any prize money, any form of sponsorship or making profit on the sale of horses.

Summerhouse Examiners Visit Fee (subject to approval):

Exam consists of 3 parts:
Summerhouse Equestrian & Training Centre Riding School & Riding Lessons Gloucestershire Theory
Summerhouse Equestrian & Training Centre Riding School & Riding Lessons Gloucestershire Prepare for transport/ loading/ unloading
Summerhouse Equestrian & Training Centre Riding School & Riding Lessons Gloucestershire Driving (if applicable)

These 3 parts do not have to be taken on the same day. For the practical assessment for the attendant, the candidate has to be assessed on preparing one horse for transport, loading and unloading it. For the driving assessment, the assessor has to see a driver with a lorry or trailer with one horse loaded, manoeuvre off a highway and select a suitable place to park where it would be safe to unload/load a horse. The driver has to show they can drive with consideration for the horses' comfort. NB. Simulation of any of the practical assessments is not allowed. The candidate MUST bring some supporting evidence to the exam which proves they have experience in the practical areas. Evidence that may be used:
    Journey logs of previously made trips
    Witness testimony of an employer
    CV which shows employment with a horse transport company
    NVQ L3 transport unit 304 (attendant)
    C&G Diploma L3 transport unit 327 &328
This evidence will be sent off to our External Verifier with your exam papers and record of Achievement.

What to do next?
Exams are usually booked on an individual basis, but can be arranged as a group exam.

As soon as payment is received we will contact you to arrange a suitable exam date and register you for the exam. Depending on the interest for this exam, we may organise set dates for the theory exam. We will publish those dates on our website.

The practical exam can be quite informal. With sufficient notice we may be able to complete this on a day when you are attending a competition at Summerhouse. Our assessor could observe you driving, loading and unloading your own horses. For the Attendant Certificate we can provide the Summerhouse lorry plus school horses for your use.

If it is convenient, we may be able to send our examiner to your yard, so you can do the exam at your workplace, although we would need to seek approval from 1st4Sport. The examiners travel time would need to be paid for although special rates may be negotiated if there are four candidates.

For the practical exam you need to bring with you the supporting evidence (as detailed previously) to prove your previous experience. When you have achieved all the practical assessments, we will apply for your certificate from 1st4Sport.
