Level Two Horse Care & Management Course

Second in the series of Equine Distance Learning's Horse Care & Management courses.

This course is the second 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.

The Level Two Horse Care & Management course is very similar to the BHS Horse Owners’ Level Two Certificate that has now been phased out.

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 Two Certificate.

"I really enjoyed doing the Level 2 Horse Care and Management course. I have learnt loads of interesting information that I didn’t know about. The course modules are very well detailed with lots of information about the First Aid, Feeding and Watering, Grassland Management, Saddlery, Insurance, Stable Routine, Bedding, Highway and Country Code. Very proud of myself for passing the course and the online test."

However the amazing, informative and inspiring courses provided by EDL have been a game changer for me. Thanks to the brilliant courses and motivational staff i have been able to pass my level 2 horse care confidently and have secured a place at university since.
