If you can’t get enough of horses and have your sights set on working with them, then this is the course for you and will be your first step into an equine career.
The first thing you’ll notice about this course is that it’s about practical learning – you’ll be spending a lot of time on our working yard, learning by doing, while you work with a range of horses.
You will be learning a wide range of husbandry skills, from the day to day care of horses to include feeding, grooming and exercising them. You will be developing all of the basic and essential skills you need to care for horses whilst being supervised and supported. Although Riding is not assessed on this course you will have the opportunity to ride once or twice a week to develop these skills, ready for the next course.
Our top class facilities include stabling for 24 horses, horse walker, solarium, and covered practical area, 20m x 60m indoor arena with viewing gallery and 30m x 60m outdoor arena. We provide a range of horses to suit all abilities including cobs, thoroughbreds, young horses and competition horses.
As a 3 day, Level 2 course, this certificate is all about introducing you to the equine industry and developing your essential skills. You’ll be learning from experienced equine professionals and instructors, who are there to give you the very best start to your career. All the staff are BHS trained and hold various BHS qualifications up to Stage 5, including a BHS assessor, BD Judge.
