Please note, this is an Intermediate Course and students are required to have previously completed the 5 Day Foundation Course.  (We will consider different prior experience if requested).

This is primarily a practical course taking place at Hartsop Farm, Finstock, Near Witney, Oxon OX7 3DE.

During this course you will have the opportunity to work with a variety of horses or ponies under the close supervision of a course tutor.

We source untouched young horses and ponies, so you can benefit from supervised ‘real life’ situations and problems.  There can be risks involved and we are sympathetic to each student’s requests and ask you to let us know at every stage which horses and situations you are comfortable with, considering your levels of experience and confidence.

This course is a required step along the journey towards becoming an Intelligent Horsemanship Recommended Trainer. Whilst not being a mandatory requirement, we also recommend taking this course before moving on to either Stage 2 or the Monty Roberts Introductory Course of Horsemanship.

Topics covered include:

  • leading
  • first headcollar
  • leg handling and more
