"I did it!! Finally, I was able to ride a horse! All thanks to this course which taught me everything I needed to know. Horses are very intelligent animals that has to be taken care of perfectly. All the units about horse care and behaviour really helped me get where I am today. There will be a lot more occasions where I will have to apply the knowledge I gained through this course and I’m looking forward to them!" - Jilly

"Ever since I was a kid, I had a lot of horses in our ranch. I always knew how to ride them and my dad taught me about caring for them. But I wanted to take it to the next step with a qualification. I’m happy to say that I’ve actually been able to learn some stuff that I didn’t know before. The staff was really helpful and attentive to all my questions." - Mia
