Are There Any Practical Tasks Within My Course?

Of course! Horses are live animals and learning about horse behaviour, especially when they are ridden is an essential part of this course.

To meet the practical coaching components of the course;

  • A combination of practical skills and theoretical knowledge are the main requirements for this qualification and these skills will be developed throughout the course.
  • There are a few options to complete the practical requirements of this course, depending on your location, time available and other commitments.
  • Our most popular option is for assessment of practical tasks to be done by video. There are instructions for the submission of video (usually through YouTube.com) within your course content.
  • If any resubmissions are required, you will receive feedback from our qualified trainer assessors
  • If you need further practical experience with horses before submitting your video, this could be done in your local area or with contacts you already have within the horse industry.
  • Please use our checklist to confirm the requirements of a suitable equestrian environment to gain further practical experience with horses https://www.InternationalHorseCollege.com/equestrian-environment-checklist
  • If you already have a horse care teacher or equestrian coach, they may be already qualified to supervise and/ or assess your practical assessments or even give us a Third Party Report. (There is an application process for assessors that must be completed prior to your assessment).
  • Other people who may be qualified to supervise and/ or assess could be your riding instructor, the owner/manager of your stable, or someone-one else you know who has considerable experience with horses. The cost for the practical assessments is paid directly to the assessor or person providing the report/s.
  • You may also be required to self assess and peer assess your practical activities with horses. A peer may be some-one with around the same experience as you with horses. They act as a mirror and mark off your checklist as you complete your activities.
  • We may also conduct some verbal assessments during a phone call or phone tutorial. Some of the practical assessments may be simulated when it is impractical to assess in a realistic setting.

Will this Course be Recognised in My Country ?

Our distance learning equine studies all work within the Australian Training Qualifications Framework (AQTF).

We provide a Pathway from High School through our Certificate and Diploma courses that give recognised credit into University courses.

These distance learning equine courses are registered in Australia, but because they are taught by distance education, students can access them around the world and still receive their educational qualifications.

Most countries recognise qualifications delivered and accredited by Registered Training Organisations in Australia. They are often held in higher regard to qualifications issued in their own country!

If your country has equestrian and equine qualifications, they may be able to grant RPL (Recognition of Prior Learning) into their qualifications from your studies at International Horse College.

Our Happy Students

“As a horse lover, owner/rider and pony club instructor I have been using the online course Cert II in Business (Working with Horses) for the last two years with 3 high school students. I have found the course interesting and engaging and all three girls have completed the course and gained their accreditation. Personally I enjoy getting the emails that Glenys sends out as they always contain so much good down to earth information and always on varying topics. The content has never failed to resonate with my own years of experience and personal feelings for the horse. I keep them all in a special file and revisit when I want a boost. Well done Glenys and the team.”
