Small Strides Foundation Level 1 Horse care Certificate

Small Strides Foundation Level 1 Horse Care Certificate is aimed at secondary school students on-ward's. The course is ideal for those either wanting to gain more experience with horse or those wanting to go onto work in the equine industry. The courses are designed and delivered by our Small Strides facilitator. We run the course at a level equivalent to an NVQ.

We specialize in working with children on the autistic spectrum and with additional educational needs and take on students from all levels of ability.

The Foundation Level 1 Horse Care Certificate covers all aspects of horse care and stable management. The course is made up of different modules which include feeding and watering horses, health and safety, grooming and preparing for a show, natural training methods and more 


Throughout the course evidence needs to be provided to show and document that students have shown a full understanding of each module. Each student will have their own portfolio to document their evidence which will consist of the following:

Theory – Questions will be asked and students will needs to write a sufficient amount to show understanding of each question.

Photographic Evidence (practical) – The assessor / facilitator will take photos of your practical work as you work through each module and reference this in your portfolio.

Learning Diary – A learning diary is a tool of reflection. It helps the student to assess what he/she has learned on the course. The aim of a learning diary is to summarize / analyze and comment on the lessons. As such it replaces or supplements an essay or final exam. A learning Diary will be provided for each module

These courses at present are run 1-1, however we can tailor these to small groups if required. On completion of the course the student will have a portfolio, along with their certificate which can be added on the students CV.
