stage 1 horse care

This 8 week Horse Care course is a great introduction to the BHS Pathway. However, you do not need to take the assessment to benefit from this informative, hands-on course.


It is the first step on the professional ladder but, more than that, teaches the essential basics for anyone who wants to own or care for horses properly.


This practical, hands-on course gives a thorough grounding in all aspects of daily care. It covers feeding, health, tack and equipment, behaviour, handling and stable/field care. In fact, everything you need to keep your horse happy and healthy.


It is suitable for ages 14 and upwards and although it is a foundation course, some familiarity with horses is needed.


Cost: £160.00 for non-members         £140.00 for members

Our next course starts on Sunday 9th February 2020. 2.00pm-4.00pm.


To book, either call the office on 01782 505664 or visit our bookings page.


£80 deposit on booking with the balance due on or before 9th February.
