Level Two Award in Horse Knowledge and Care (Instalments)

Third in the series of Equine Distance Learning's Horse Knowledge and Care courses.

The Level Two Award in Horse Knowledge and Care certificate is the third in our series of Horse Knowledge and Care Certificates. This professionally produced horse care course is aimed at people who are looking to learn about more intermediate skills in horse care. 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 course is very similar to the BHS Horse Owners’ Level Three Certificate that has now been phased out. It is 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 by 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 Three Certificate.

"I had already achieved my BHS Stage 1 and was working towards my Stage 2 and I found the content of this course really helped me with my preparation towards my BHS Stage 2 exam. I was impressed with the quality of the course material and I would not hesitate to study with Equine Distance Learning again!"
