This two part course is a requirement for those taking part in the equine certificate courses, and is open to anyone interested in learning about horses. Participants must have had some basic handling skills with horses.
Part 1 – Reading the Response of the Horse: We investigate body language communication between horses, and horses and people. Through understanding the needs of horses and their communication signs, we can provide them with wellbeing choices.
Part 2 – Applied Handling Skills: We explore behaviour and training methods, and put in to practice some essential handling skills.
The course takes place through online study, photos, videos, practical tasks and written work, followed by a one to one practical assessment. An additional practical half hour lesson can be bought for a further £20.
If the practical assessment needs to be repeated, this will incur a cost of a further £20.
The online section can be completed for interest only without the need to do the practical assessment section, but no cpd certificate will be issued. This is £25.

This short home study course provides students with information on the behaviour of cats, and why they behave as they do. The course was written by Laura Sales, college lecturer in small animal behaviour and care, and Helen Gerard, who is a behaviourist based in Gloucestershire.
This course is an ideal adjunct to any animal therapy training, and a required module for some of the Rose Applied Animal Therapy courses. However, anyone with an interest in rabbits, their behaviour and wellbeing will find this interesting and useful.
