¿Qué aprendes en este curso?



This distance learning Equine Studies course is designed to enhance your knowledge of purchasing and looking after a horse and also improve your skill in riding. No doubt you will already have a love of horses, and we hope that by doing this course you will complement that love with detailed theoretical and practical knowledge.

  • Course Length - 12 Months
  • Award Received - Level 2 Certificate of Achievement by ABC
  • Course Code: UANC03

You will learn about how the horse has evolved, the physical features of the horse, the differences between breeds, what you should take into account when buying a horse, what gear you should have, and, just as importantly, issues to do with safety and the health of horses. You will also learn more about the skills of riding such as walking and halting.

However, we do need to stress that this course is for those who are riders themselves and not really for those are simply enthusiasts. Some of our assignment questions do presuppose that the student has some practical experience of horses and riding, and those who don’t have access to a horse and the whole experience of riding would not be able to complete the assignments.

  • UNIT 1: Evolution of the Horse
  • UNIT 2: Anatomy of the Horse
  • UNIT 3: Horse Breeds
  • UNIT 4: Which Horse is Best for you?
  • UNIT 5: Buying a Horse
  • UNIT 6: Basic Health and Safety for the Rider and Establishment
  • UNIT 7: Grooming and Tacking
  • UNIT 8: Leading, Mounting and Dismounting
  • UNIT 9: Walking and Halting
  • UNIT 10: Trotting Basics
  • UNIT 11: Stable Care
  • UNIT 12: Basic Vet Care and First Aid

At the end of this course successful learners will receive a Certificate of Achievement from ABC Awards and a Learner Unit Summary (which lists the details of all the units the learner has completed as part of the course).

The course has been endorsed under the ABC Awards' Quality Licence Scheme. This means that UK Distance Learning and Publishing has undergone an external quality check to ensure that the organisation and the courses it offers, meet certain quality criteria. The completion of this course alone does not lead to an Ofqual regulated qualification but may be used as evidence of knowledge and skills towards regulated qualifications in the future. The unit summary can be used as evidence towards Recognition of Prior Learning if you wish to progress your studies in this sector. To this end the learning outcomes of the course have been benchmarked at Level 3 against level descriptors published by Ofqual, to indicate the depth of study and level of demand/complexity involved in successful completion by the learner.

The course itself has been designed by UK Distance Learning and Publishing to meet specific learners' and/or employers' requirements which cannot be satisfied through current regulated qualifications. ABC Awards' endorsement involves robust and rigorous quality audits by external auditors to ensure quality is continually met. A review of courses is carried out as part of the endorsement process.

ABC Awards is a leading national Awarding Organisation, regulated by Ofqual, and the Welsh Government[1]. It has a long-established reputation for developing and awarding high quality vocational qualifications across a wide range of industries. As a registered charity, ABC Awards combines 180 years of expertise but also implements a responsive, flexible and innovative approach to the needs of our customers.

Renowned for excellent customer service, and quality standards, ABC Awards also offers Ofqual regulated qualifications for all ages and abilities post-14; all are developed with the support of relevant stakeholders to ensure that they meet the needs and standards of employers across the UK.
