Do I have to own a horse to take part in this programme?
Not at all! This programme is open to everyone, whether you ride regularly at a riding school, help with a friend’s horse, whether you’re a student at college, returning to horse ownership after a break, or thinking about buying your first horse.
What if I can’t make the live training sessions?
Don’t worry, all the sessions will be recorded and made available to you via my website, so that you can watch the replays and work through the topics in your own time. All participants will have lifetime access to the programme, for as long as it is available.
I’m not very good with technology, and I’m worried that I won’t know how to join the training sessions!
All the live sessions will take place via Zoom, which is totally free for you to access. You can join the sessions on your computer, smartphone or tablet. I’ll also send you clear instructions on how to use Zoom and take part, so please don’t worry!
What if I change my mind?
If for any reason you think the programme is not for you, or you change your mind, then I offer a 7-day money-back guarantee from the point of payment.
I don’t live in the UK, will this programme help me?
Yes absolutely! The principles of good horse management and care can (and should!) be applied anywhere, and will time differences might mean that you can’t always access the live sessions, you can certainly use the recordings to boost your learning.
Do I have to be a member of the British Horse Society to do this programme?
No! This training is open to anyone of any age (although it’s probably most appropriate for children aged 12 or above)
Does this programme include the exam?
No, the BHS Stage 1 Horse Care & Management exam/qualification is not part of this programme, but we will cover everything you need to know in order to prepare and train to take the exam.
Do I have to take the BHS Stage 1 Horse Care & Management exam?
No, absolutely not! This programme is to help you get a clear understanding of the basics of caring for and managing horses, and it’s entirely up to you whether you decide to take the exam or not, there’s no pressure at all.
Does this programme also include training towards the ridden sections of the BHS qualifications?
No, there is no riding training included in this programme.
What if I love the programme and want to progress?
I will be offering a Stage Two Horse Care & Management group coaching programme a little later in the year, so that would be a natural progression! You do not have to have taken the BHS Stage 1 exam to progress on Stage Two training with me!
I’m not sure whether this programme is for me right now, what should I do?
Simply email me firstname.lastname@example.org with your questions or concerns, and I’ll be delighted to help you decide whether it is for you or not. It’s really important to me that the right people join and take part in this programme, so please do get in touch. There won’t be any pressure to join or awkward sales pitch, and you’ll get a feel for whether you’d like to work with me or not.
