Horse Owner

You were so helpful with all my questions though and it put my mind at rest so I hooked myself onto it and thoroughly enjoy it. I love the way it was broken into modules so I didn't have to sit in front of a screen for a whole day in one sitting. I liked the hand books too as I read these before just to give me an idea of what was coming up.

Michelle Earle

Yard Manager

Fantastic course, I can't recommend it highly enough. I learnt so much and was amazed by how much first aid for horses has moved on. A professionally run course, good learning materials, excellent vet who explained everything really well and answered so many questions by those attending. Anyone who works with or owns a horse should attend this course.

Jodie Rosina

Horse Owner

I couldn't recommend this course enough. I have already used it in my daily yard life (including my new first aid box i put together after my first session). They are so well structured, and so much extra reading you can do on top of the training with a qualified vet!

Catherine Goodwin

The podcasts are brilliant and the range of professional contributors are fantastic. I will be highly recommending to all my horsey friends and it is a must for horse owners or anyone working with horses.

James Berry

It is great to be presented by vets that are both very knowledgable but are also open minded to new treatments.

Emma Young

It is great listening to vets speak about their first hand experience.
