Equestrian Qualifications (GB) Ltd
Equestrian Qualifications GB Limited (EQL) is a subsidiary company of The British Horse Society but stands alone in its remit to award equestrian qualifications. EQL is an Awarding Organisation recognised by Ofqual and, as such, must comply with a range of criteria, including robust assurance for developing and awarding qualifications.
EQL awards qualifications on behalf of The BHS and the British Equestrian Federation. The British Horse Society re-branded its qualifications under the new Awarding Body name. There is a clear division between The BHS and the Awarding Body. EQL also awards Scottish Vocational Qualifications, Work Based Diplomas and Equestrian Tourism Qualifications.
EQL awards qualifications and examinations in the UK and internationally. Qualifications awarded in England, Wales and Northern Ireland are regulated by Ofqual, the regulator of qualifications, examinations and assessments in England and vocational qualifications in Northern Ireland. Our Scottish Vocational Qualifications are regulated by The Scottish Qualifications Authority.
