  • This is primarily a practical course taking place at Hartsop Farm.
  • During this course you will have the opportunity to work with a variety of horses or ponies under the close supervision of a course tutor.
  • Topics covered include:
    • leading
    • first headcollar
    • leg handling and more
  • We source untouched young horses and ponies, so you can benefit from supervised ‘real life’ situations and problems. 

There can be risks involved and we are sympathetic to each student’s requests and ask you to let us know at every stage which horses and situations you are comfortable with, considering your levels of experience and confidence.

This course is a required step along the journey towards becoming an Intelligent Horsemanship Recommended Trainer. Whilst not being a mandatory requirement, we also recommend taking this course before moving on to the Intelligent Horsemanship Diploma and the Monty Roberts Introductory Course of Horsemanship.
