Equestrian Canada Rider/Driver Program

The Equestrian Canada Learn to Ride/Drive Programs are self paced and student/coach led. You do not need to register for the program. Set up of the date, time and location of exams is done by the coach/student.

English and Western Exam fee’s for 2018 are $21.00, Drive Exam fee’s per level is $15.75 (includes GST) 

Payment must be included when the finished test is sent to HCBC. We are not able to call for Credit Card numbers or hold the exam for payment. If payment is not included with the exam, it will be sent back to the testing coach.
