This course will teach you about horse behaviour and the safest way to handle and care for them.
There is some flexibility within these units. If you would like to complete different units within your Introduction To Horses course then please talk to us.
We may have your required units within another one of our courses, and can easily offer you a change of units within your course.
On successful completion of the ‘Introduction To Horses’ course, you will receive the ‘RGR10118 Certificate I in Racing’ qualification.
We want you to be qualified in the latest, most up to date courses. If the Training Package changes while you are enrolled then we will do our best to change your course into the new Training Package as early as possible.
Also, we monitor the latest demands of the horse industry and we continually update our courses to meet these demands and to give you the best course possible.
How Long Will My Course Take?
This course to introduce you to horses safely and correctly has been designed for full time study, over 12 weeks (14 weeks including holidays).
However, it could take less time if you already have previous experience with horses or plan to study for more than 23 hours per week plan to study full time.
If you plan to study this course as well as school, college or University then please talk to use about a flexible schedule that allows more study time over your holidays.

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.”
