Level 3 Equine Care & Management

£300  – This is not a stand alone course and is available only to limited current Lingfield students.


  • The course builds on what has previously been learned.

It does not include any intermediate information and expects participants to be working at professional / competition / international groom level

Our courses are generally above the standard of equivalent courses available from other providers.  Students for Level 3 are therefore expected to have achieved experience in the industry well above the average pleasure horse owner and have achieved Stage 2 or an equivalent standard of professional qualification and knowledge to at least BHS Stage 3.

Together with this they are expected to have an academic approach to their studies.

Good research skills are required at this level. Several research topics are included in each element of this course.

  • 10 modules
  • Multiple learning tasks and assignments. To complete assignments you will require Adobe Acrobat Reader.
  • Self assessment, research projects
  • Optional final assignment for Certification (tutor assessed)
  • Admin fee for optional tutor assessed assignments £15 / £19 Paypal/overseas

Option to achieve Certificate on completion:

  • Specialist course Certificate ‘Level 3 Equine Care & Management’

Entry Requirements:   

  • Minimum age 16 years
  • Provide copies of BHS Stage 2, Lingfield Int Dip or Level 1 & 2 Certificates
  • Good all round experience with horses and equine management.
