How to enrol ABRS staff


1.  The Proprietor/Employer must:

  • Read this and the previous ‘Enrolment’ page carefully + Terms & Conditions 
  • Find ABRS log in code – you will need the last four letters to enrol.
  • Invite and ensure your student (staff member/s) reads this page + T & C
  • Note that staff must be on the payroll of an ABRS Riding School/Centre.

The same day as enrolling your staff on the course:

  • Email  with full name, age, home addresses and email details of your staff member/s (student/s). Include the first 3 letters of your ABRS log in code.
  • Enrol your staff member on the course in their presence  (they should also be online with their own device – laptops / ipads).
    • Note:  Phones prove difficult when saving encrypted files and completing saved forms
  •  Alternatively, if not with you, ensure the staff member is online at their own device and are ready to receive an automated email.  The automated email is sent to student immediately you click pay.
  • The automated mail contains time limited link to the first course file
  • To complete the transaction, student must immediately download the file to device (i.e. must SAVE it) before attempting to open the file.
  • Please assist by having your staff ready and waiting to download, save, then to open & confirm to Lingfield.  All this happens as soon as you click ‘pay’ thus enabling the fee to remain at a sustainable level.
    • Too much admin time/emails back and forth helping staff with enrolment process means the fee will have to be increased.  Please have them ready = and make sure they used the test document on previous page
  • Online card payments only thus enabling sustainable fee.

Go back to The Responsible Groom course page click Enrol :

    • Under Billing details:
      • Insert your own (proprietor / employer) details for card payment.
    • Under Student email:
      • Insert the student’s email address (typed correctly to ensure the course link arrives!)
    • Under student details:
      • Insert students name.
    • In the student address field insert:
      • Riding School / Equestrian Centre name, first 3 letters of ABRS log in and your school address
    • Payment – Card only please.  No phone/direct payments or Paypal available for this course (thus enabling sustainability of fee).
    • Agree T & C and click pay.
    • Be sure that student confirms file saved and open, and also confirms by email with Lingfield.
      • This confirmation completes transaction.

2.  The employee / student taking the course should:

  • Prior to enrolment you must confirm with your  employer that you have downloaded the free Adobe App and can use it successfully via your laptop / ipad.  This applies to both students if sharing.  See Test document bottom of course/enrolment page.

As soon as the course fee has been paid, you must be aware that:

  1. You (the lead student) will receive an automated email with password and the course file download link
  2. You must immediately save the file to a device or app.
  3. NOTE:  You have 3 attempts (clicks) only to save the file. You must therefore be aware when clicking on the link, where you are saving the file on your device.
  4. Save the file to the free app ‘Adobe Acrobat’ (if using an ipad) – or if using a laptop, to your download then documents folder.  Check it opens OK once saved.
  5. Do not just open it – you MUST save it to a device first. The file is not available online
    • Sharers:
    • Forward the automated email (containing password), and a copy of the file to your sharer immediately.
    • Ask them to confirm they have saved it and then opened it and that it reads OK.
    • Both of you confirm to your employer that you have saved and can re-access the file.
    • Lead student must confirm to Lingfield that you both have the file saved and can re-access it.
  6. Without confirmation to Lingfield your course cannot be certificated

The link is live for 3 days only.  The link allows you 3 attempts only to save the file.

Files for those with disabilities / access issues are available on request.

How to work through the course:

  1. Employer and student arrange quiet times to work on this short and simple course on students own device. If training is license date dependent, arrange a completion date with staff member.
  2. Your staff member simply reads through each short module as and when it arrives in their inbox.
  3. Students work at own speed.  There is no fixed completion date or scheduling. Work the course into YOUR timetable. (this may be subject to licence renewal – employer to check)
  4. Request new Topic files (modules) by ‘number’ in an email.
  5. Simply read each module through jot down notes if you wish.
  6. Allow a minimum of 3-4 full days to read through, understand and absorb each module as it relates to your place of work.
  7. Complete each of the 5 Topics

Final Assignment:

  • Submit final assignment to your tutor at Lingfield Equine Distance Learning for checking.
  • Should any answers need re working your tutor will provide feedback.  Simply repeat and resubmit.
