HRC-Level I Riding for disabled

Career Courses

Students generally complete this course within twelve months.

This is a qualification especially designed for people who want to also specialise in teaching horseridingskills to riders with a disability. There are various groups and ridingcentres that include riders with special needs, and by having this knowledge and skills you can provide highly rewarding services to a larger section of the population.

Total cost Level I Teach riders woth a disability Instructor's course $ 960.00 (save $ 75.00), including video assessments of practical tasks.

The course is essentially the same as the Level I Instructors course. After all, many of the riding and teaching principles are the same for all beginner riders. However, we have replaced unit 012, Business principles, with an extensive unit dealing with the additional knowledge that you need when running a riding for disabled group or program.

Horse riding can have great therapeutic benefits for all riders, emotionally, developmentally and physically. When you know how to facilitate riders with special needs you will provide opportunities and pleasure to riders, often by only slightly modifying equipment or mounting procedures or giving that extra bit of support to make it all possible. The accompanying support video will explain and show all techniques in detail.

Of course reliable and well trained horses are essential. Plus logical and progressive lesson plans with many activities to teach and re-enforce basic skills and techniques. Therefore we have included the Games book with 70 games, which can be adapted to many levels of riders.
