A Horse Handlers Course can be arranged upon request. Often racecourses have personnel that receive this training but we can provide it for individuals or organisations who would have such a requirements.

The training can either be delivered at the College or on site, as long as the site has the appropriate equine facilities / horses.

  • Un-tacking horses that are on the ground (winded, unconscious or dead) – Theory
  • Question and Answer session

If delivered at NHC the cost of the course includes refreshments. Participants will receive a certificate on completion of the course.

Costs will be dependent on the numbers being trained and whether the training takes place at NHC or on site.
