Who will supervise my practical assessments?
If you already have a horse riding instructor of equestrian coach, they will probably be automatically qualified to supervise your practical assessments. Other people that may be qualified to supervise are the owner/manager of your stable, or some-one else you know who has considerable experience with horses.
You will also be required to 'self' assess and 'peer' assess horse course practical activities. A 'peer' may be some-one with around the same experience as you with horses. They act as a 'mirror' and mark off your checklist as you complete your activities.
Can I really gain an Educational Qualification from an Online Horse School?
Unlike many other online equine schools, Study Horse .com is an accredited educational institution where you will receive an official recognition from the Department of Education, Training and the Arts. Students will receive an Accredited Educational Qualification or an Accredited Statement of Attainment on completion of every one of our equine elearning courses.

Who is Study Horses .com and Ausintec Academy?
Ausintec Academy (previously Caboolture Equestrian Centre) has now been delivering Vocational Education for budding equestrians for almost 20 years.
Over that period of time, we have built strong teaching systems that allow students to safely progress step by step into a professional role in the International Equine Industry.
Many International students were from non-English speaking backgrounds so we have customised our courses with simple step by step instructions written in into plain English that are easy to read and understand
At the original campus, students included
children riding ponies
adult beginners learning about horse care and horse riding (including parents and partners of existing horse riding students)
competitive equestrian riders in showjumping, dressage, horse trials, combined training, showing, jumping equitation and pony club
beginner horse riding instructors and equestrian coaches
qualified professional equestrian coaches training towards higher qualifications
Our facilities and resources to learn about horses included a wide range of horses and equestrian equipment, air-conditioned classrooms and EFA and AHRC coaches teaching the programs, supported by regular elite level guest equestrian coaches
However many potential students from interstate, overseas and isolated communities were not able to access our classes and courses because of the location, time and family commitments as well as financial restrictions. They requested a flexible system that would fit into their needs.
We have met those needs and now have an online equine school that delivers home study equine courses with
Online equine classes in
Basic horse care and riding
Teaching and coaching
Beginner horse riding
Safe Trail riding
Online equine science and advanced horse care
Online equine management for horse associated businesses
Courses in the equine industry for students working towards online equine degrees
Our Director personally understands the needs of Equine and Equestrian Professional Bodies and the education systems that they work within, and has either written or had input into courses within these equestrian and equine education bodies
Australian Horse Riding Centres
AHRC Coaching Qualifications
AHRC Proficiency Certificates
Equestrian Australia/Equestrian Federation of Australia
EA/EFA Equestrian Coaching Qualifications
EA/EFA Horse Management Certificates
EA/EFA Horse Riding Certificates
Service Skills Australia
Equestrian Units in the Sport Industry Training Package
Horse Riding units in the Outdoor Recreation Training Package
In addition, she has studied within the British Horse Society system and several Australian Equine Education systems and as well has taught in the United States of America, United Kingdom, Australia, Asia and Europe so has an understanding of the different needs of horses and horse care in various parts of the world.
With a proven track record in training budding professionals, we have adopted our systems to implement these online courses. The latest software to support this innovative program has been put into operation and the team at Ausintec Academy/Study Horses .com are ready to go.
Why is there such a huge discount on the cost of this course?
Simple! We need a group of students to trial our home study equine courses and are prepared to subsidise your equine/equestrian training. In return we ask that you give us your opinion on the course and let us know of any ‘teething’ problems.
However, as soon as we have our 'Trial Group', the price WILL GO UP. If you would like to learn more about horses, and in particular if you plan to work in the international equine industry then I urge you to enrol in an equine e learning course NOW.
