Why use Lingfield equine distance learning courses?
Because : We're in it for the outcome - not for the income ! and...
L & B Said: After taking our HOCs with Lingfield, we both needed our BHS Stages 1 & 2 for our Approved Holiday Centre Manager qualifications, so we took a college Stages course. We wasted our money! In the end we used our course notes from Lingfield. These courses are so much more detailed and comprehensive than we realised”
|J North said: "I help out with horse care mucking out and tacking up at a stables. It was suggested I take the "Intermediate Diploma" in equine management which I thought was a bit beyond me. It was actually just right" (Flexible completion dates, personal tutor support & working at your own speed in your own time, mean it's even suitable for novices like J North)
|Sam Hays after completing Level 1 of the Intermediate Diploma programme, Sam took the professional exam and said: "I passed BHS Stage 1! I'm really pleased. I hope to take Stage 2 later this year and don't think there's anything I haven't covered in my Lingfield Intermediate Diploma "
|Amy said: "I was fed up with certain people at the yard telling me I should be doing things "this way" or "that way" - it's so confusing. Taking equine studies with Lingfield horse care has given me the confidence to ignore them and do it my way!"|
Although qaulifications are important to some, it is the welfare of the horse which should come first!
Katie Paris said: "I have worked with horses for over 30 years but needed to brush up and get more up to date. Good layout, easy to read and friendly helpful tutor"

Recent review of the training guide :
"This is a fantastic little book. It has all the information you need to help you decide which qualification to go for. It has ideas on where to train and how to go about finding the right place and even has information on setting up your own business.
When I was looking around for some sort of training to become a riding instructor and horse trainer, I wanted to train on a part time basis but couldn't find anywhere to take me on. I now know that I just didn't know how to go about it. I wish this little guide had been available when I was looking for training" Jenny Graham
A must for the mature person thinking about working with horses on a full or part time basis. Suggestions are given about gaining funding for your training. Specific information is given to those aiming at a career change, such as wanting to finally become a professional after being involved for some years or aiming to set up your own livery or equine related business.
