We look first at building that all important relationship between you and the horse in the round pen, followed by the introduction of a saddle and longlining. It is important to establish that the young horse has a full understanding of walk, trot, halt, rein-back and turning. We then look at getting the first rider on and the critical importance of the position you adopt, along with all the safety precautions you should take to keep both you and your horse safe. We will also discuss common problems that you can encounter when starting a young horse and how to overcome them, as well as a few tricks of the trade.
This qualification is ideally suited for those candidates who have a genuine interest and passion in the care and welfare of horses.
You must complete the first unit in Equine Behaviour (EQ076) and then you can enrol on any of the other units individually.
