Why this course?

Horse breeding is an important sector within the equine industry; and a knowledge of breeding horses is of great value to anyone who works with horses; not only breeders.

Horse ownership is flourishing in many countries. 

While owning a horse is a dream for many people, it is a dream that comes with responsibilities. It requires you to know and understand the different aspects of caring for these intelligent animals. 

This course provides important information on horse ownership and care.

The equine industry is bigger than what most people might realise today. It employs large numbers of people and horses found in more industries than you might realise, including: 

  • Racing
  • Recreational Riding
  • Tourism
  • Mounted Police

Learn about horse psychology and handling, evaluate conformation, understand the importance of dietary requirements to the horse, learn about the horses digestive system and the principles of feeding and watering your horse, use correct grooming procedures, develop appropriate management procedures and broaden existing knowledge of commercial opportunities in the horse world. Manage horses kept on pasture and learn relevant pasture management techniques to maintain productivity and prevent “horse sick” pastures.
