The Certificate II in Equine Studies provides learners with the skills and knowledge required to identify and monitor the signs of common illness and injury in horses and covers preventative regimes that are an integral part of horse husbandry.
Learners will learn to identify the anatomical structures and understand the physiology of horses, being trained or used for competitive performance, breeding, racing and recreation.
You will learn to identify desirable conformation in horses and develop the ability to use appropriate conformation terminology. We will teach you how to recognize conformational defects, lameness and blemishes that may affect gait and performance.
You will also learn how to implement feeding programs, monitor the quality of feed, feed supplements and individual feeding habits of horses.
We recommend Certificate II in Equine Studies as a great follow on from RGR10108 – Certificate I in Racing (Stable hand).
