Feedback. Sarah Lillie said: The course really highlights how, with so much available on the feeding front now, so many people get confused. It shows we have to be careful and explains clearly how to do our research properly. It encourages you to read other material which broadens your learning and opinions. The Set work is good and challenging.

This Feeding & Nutrition element of this programme has exceptional feedback which proves how much it has helped so many people.
We prefer students taking this programme to have working knowledge of good equine management. For the specialist course material to have sufficient clarity to the student undertaking a 3 course programme and to ensure a good grounding in all round equine management, at least 5 Study Packs (modules) of the Level 1 Equine Care & Management course must be completed before working seriously on the specialist course SC5.
The final Section of the specialist course may only be requested on completion of the Level 2 Study Pack 4 and the SC5 Assignment can be sent in on completion of Level 2.
With motivation and enthusiasm, dependent on previous experience, personal input and studying skills, many students complete the programme within 8 months. Between 500 & 700 hours of study time is the average input.
