Stage One Horse Care & Management programme

This is an online, self-study programme where you’ll learn the correct principles of horse management, so that you can provide the very best care for your horse and keep him (or her!) healthy & happy.

Over the course of 10 weeks, you’ll get online, self-study sessions where you’ll learn the basics of owning and managing your horse. You’ll get weekly training sessions, where we’ll focus on one of the following topics:

  • Anatomy & Physiology
  • Horse health
  • Care of the stabled horse
  • Care of the grass-kept horse
  • Feeding & watering
  • Tack & Equipment
  • The foot and shoeing
  • Horse behaviour
  • General knowledge of horse care & management

The training sessions will be between 1-2 hours in length, and you’ll get a workbook for each module, and get the opportunity to ask questions at the end of each session. There will also be additional instructional videos, for you to watch in your own time, showing exactly how to carry out the practical activities safely and efficiently.

The course follows the British Horse Society Stage 1 syllabus for Horse Care and Management, and we will cover everything you need to prepare for this exam (if that’s your goal!)

By completing this course, you will know the basics of caring for and managing horses, so that you can be confident that you are doing everything you can right now, to keep your horse happy and healthy.

All training sessions are recorded, along with the workbooks and learning resources, so that you’ll have access to them here on the website, whenever you like after the live course.
