The Benefits of Home Study Equestrian Courses

June 14, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 200

Distance learning is hugely popular amongst horse owners/carers. For those with busy lives, home study is an ideal way of expanding and updating their horse care knowledge.

With flexible home study courses it is easy to put your course-work away when life gets busy and pick it up when it settles down again. You cannot do that with fixed time equine management lecture classes. If you are unable to attend one week, you miss the lecture and anyway you want to spend all the time you can with your horse. With home study courses those lecture notes are sitting at home waiting for you to open the file. With good equestrian training providers, a qualified instructor is on call for each student.

You work in your own time and at your own speed, no rush and no hassle. You, rather than your teacher/tutor, decide when and where you study. The lecturer isn't standing there expecting you respond to an unexpected question or complete the piece of work they just handed out.

Distance learning is just so flexible. You slot a little study time into your day whenever you feel like it. When Mum finds herself sitting in the car waiting for her son or daughter, instead of listening to the radio or ringing a friend she can catch a bit of quiet study time.

Mrs 'Know-it-all' is one of the biggest problems new horse owners meet. Every yard seems to have one. Their aim in life is to guide and instruct the newer or less experienced horse owner. Initially, the new owner finds it helpful with to be under the wing of the 'experienced' person. However, after a while they begin to realise that 'Mrs know it all', does not in fact know it all after all and objects when the new owner starts to have their own ideas on how to do things.

In order to avoid having to ask and rely on others, the new owner often enrolls on a course to broaden their own knowledge on equine care. With home study courses no one need even be aware they are taking a course and in some circumstances that is a bonus.

Having the knowledge to look after your own horse properly is a huge confidence booster and gaining the final certificate is proof to yourself that you have achieved your goal. In fact for many, taking a distance learning horse course is really empowering. The added benefit is the back up of a qualified instructor/tutor on whom you can call for help with horse questions and problems.
