This course is the fourth and most advanced in our series of Horse Care and Management Certificates. This professionally produced course 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 course is very similar to the BHS Horse Owners’ Level Four Certificate that has now been phased out. It is completed by home study without the need to travel anywhere. You can work at your own pace and around your other commitments. Assessments are also completed at home 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 Four Certificate.

"I decided to increase my horse knowledge following a major accident which has left me unable to walk for the last 20 months. The course material is detailed and easy to follow, with suggestions on where to obtain further information. Diagrams are clear and well labelled. There is always someone at the end of the phone to offer advice and support. I have found studying for this course to be very therapeutic for me, I'm unable to ride my horses at the moment, so this is a way of making good use of the time and indulging my passion. Would recommend the course to anyone who shares a passion for horses and wishes to improve their knowledge."Sue Halliwell, March 2017
