  • Horse Lover Says Interesting and Engaging

    "As a horse lover, owner/rider and pony club instructor I have been using the online course Cert II in Business (Working with Horses) for the last two years with 3 high school students.

    I have found the course interesting and engaging and all three girls have completed the course and gained their accreditation.

    Personally I enjoy getting the emails that Glenys sends out as they always contain so much good down to earth information and always on varying topics.

    The content has never failed to resonate with my own years of experience and personal feelings for the horse.

    I keep them all in a special file and revisit them when I want a boost.

    Well done Glenys and the team at Online Horse College."
