"My aim is to educate all horse enthusiasts and give them the resources to develop their knowledge and understanding of horse care, in a friendly and approachable environment. In turn, this will promote the correct care of horses and will support horse welfare. We are here to help you with all aspects of horse care and management."

Sarah Tame, MSc Equine Science, BHS Stage 4 Senior Coach & Founder of Equine Distance Learning

"The course has really helped me gain confidence in my knowledge and reignited my love of horse care. Its been a great thing to do over the summer and means that as I further my university career I don’t lose my horsey roots."

- Charlie Tilley, BHS Challenge Award

"I’ve really enjoyed my time working through the course. The content and resources have been very interesting and informative and a great way to refresh knowledge or learn a new skill. The staff too have been lovely, replying to any queries promptly and helpfully"

- Abigail Fishwick, Introduction to Equine Massage

"The course programme has been really helpful in getting back into my passion. Having left it until after I had my family (20+ yrs), it's now given me a focus. The course delivery was easy to follow, with tutors on hand if there was ever a query. Tutors were very helpful and polite. A great starting point for anyone to help enjoy their pony/horse, highly recommended! Now looking forward to another course!"

- Nicola Smith, Horse Knowledge & Care

"I thoroughly enjoyed studying the Equine Psychology course and found Viki, my tutor, to be extremely supportive throughout. It was really good to get a fresh perspective on my horse's behaviour and to be able to build a stronger bond with him due to learning techniques and strategies that I'd either forgotten about due to complacency or didn't know about in the first place! I would highly recommend Equine Distance Learning to anyone who has an interest in horses, from beginners to experienced horse owners, we can all learn something new and Kerry is always quick to respond if you need advice or assistance! Can't wait to start another course with them very soon!"

- Angela Fear, Equine Psychology B behaviour

Taking part in the BHS Challenge Award in Horse Knowledge, Part One course has been very informative, the way the course is set out is very easy to learn from. As the course was easy to complete I will now be booking onto Level 2.
Kerry has been great with communication whenever I’ve needed her, replying to emails very quickly.

Sophie, BHS Horse Knowledge Part One

I found this course really interesting and especially liked watching the videos and then using the skills for real. I learned lots of new things and even though I am only 14, I found the course fully accessible.

- Ashleigh Clewley-Lyon, Equine Behaviour & Psychology

"Over the moon to complete this very interesting course. I love seeing what new courses Equine Distance Learning have regularly and expanding my equine knowledge. Really recommend their courses. So thrilled to have received so many awards with them and look forward to completing more in the future."

- Olivia Sanders

"A big thank you to the Equine Distance Learning for getting me through my BHS Essential Horse Knowledge Certificate entry level exam. It was a great experience, I have a busy job and two young children so to be able to fit study around those has been amazing, Kerry and Sarah have been hugely supportive and I will be signing up with them for the next level."

- Julie Hobbis, Essential Horse Knowledge

I have enjoyed doing this course and have learnt lots of new things like bringing horses up from grass, will definitely be doing another course in the future!
