We are an open, friendly organisation and we want to help you!
Do you want to learn as much as you can about horses? If so, we can help! We receive so much positive feedback from our students as you can see below:
"I have really enjoyed the Equine Distance Learning courses I have studied so far and am looking forward to studying more. They have either taught me a whole new subject in the Equine Industry or have recapped my already known knowledge. Each course is set out in a easy format that is easy to follow. Every course is worth it if you want to learn more about horses and increase your knowledge. I love the way you don't have a time limit and can take your time working your way through the courses. I recommend Equine Distance Learning courses to anyone who wants to learn more about horses and gain some qualifications, so if you're thinking about doing one go and give it a go and see for yourself of what you can achieve!'
