Students can complete the course with their own horse if they have one, with a lease horse or at a local riding school.
If your school already has equestrian facilities on site, then the practical tasks could be completed using those horses too!
Teachers and Coordinators are encouraged to communicate with the Australian Equine Institute team to ensure the student is maximising the opportunity. It also helps keep all parties 'in the loop' as to the students ongoing ptrogress and performance.
