The Nancy G. Held Center gained approval as a British Horse Society riding and boarding establishment in July of 2007. Certification as an official British Horse Society training center was earned in December of 2009.
As such, Albion College offers a unique educational opportunity: students may earn a Bachelor's degree (B.A.) from Albion while training and studying for the British Horse Society examinations, allowing them to gain BHS Assistant Instructor status (International Level I) while earning a traditional undergraduate degree.
Full-time British Horse Society training for certification is also available at the Held Center.
