This course is the first in our series of Horse Care and Management Certificates. This professionally produced horse care course by Equine Distance Learning is aimed at people who are looking to learn the basics that everyone interested in horses needs to know! It will suit horse riders, prospective horse owners or sharers, people wishing to update their knowledge and home educated children with a passion for horses.
This basic level Horse Care course is very similar to the BHS Horse Owners’ Level One Certificate that has now been phased out. The Horse Care & Management course completed by distance learning without the need to travel anywhere. You can work at your own pace and around your other commitments. Assessments are also completed via distance learning and then sent in for marking. You will benefit from full tutor support throughout the course and will not be charged any extra for the marking of your assessments. Once you have completed the course successfully you will be awarded with an Equine Distance Learning Horse Care & Management Level One Certificate.

"‘I took the Level One Horse Care & Management course, and firstly I would 100% recommend Equine Distance Learning to anyone! It’s so easy to fit around everyday life. Kerry has been so understanding and patient when I couldn’t get things done by the deadline, due to other commitments, which I’m super thankful for! I’ve been able to refresh my horse knowledge while having fun doing so! Can’t wait to do Level Two."

"I struggled in the beginning of my course as I hadn't studied for many years but the simplicity of the course layout and the way it was broken down allowed me to study as and when and at my own pace and relaxed me enough to be confident in my ability. The support from Kerry and the team was fantastic and my results were always sent back to me very quickly. Would highly recommend equine distance learning. This was my first course but it will not be my last 😀"

"I have been working with horses for many years but never had any qualifications in this sphere due to having a very busy life but this course has fitted in perfectly. I have enjoyed every moment of the course as I believe in the horse industry you never stop learning. It was great to know I always had support when I needed it and would definitely recommend anybody to enrol as you really have nothing to lose! Thank you!"

“I really enjoyed doing the Level 1 Horse Care and Management course. I have never done a home course study before but I’m pleased I did because it gave me something to do, learn about the horses and gaining a qualification. Thank you to Kerry and Sarah for all your support and keeping updated on how I’m doing. I would recommend Equine Distance Learning to anyone who has an interest or a person who is keen to learn more about horses. I am so happy and proud of achieving and passing my exam.”
