I was really happy with the course, it was reasonably priced and pretty straight forward. In the most part, I found the first two lessons the best as I want to be a vet and specialise in equine health. But even the last two lessons as I eventually want to open my own clinic so the management side was good as well.

Why study horse care?

The relationship between horse and rider has been of enduring importance since the were first domesticated in central Asia (probably earlier than 3500 B.C.) Traditionally the use of horses has been military and commercial, but in modern times this has moved to a stronger recreational purposes and competitive uses (sporting and non-sporting).  Whether you are a recreational rider, a stud owner or just love horses, understanding the care and wellbeing of horses is essential for getting the most out of horse ownership.


Do you offer horsemanship courses?

While we don’t offer any horsemanship courses we are happy to make recommendations based on our own practical experience about where to go for online horsemanship & training support.
