“Studying at Equitation Science International has significantly impacted my life in several ways. It has greatly broadened my education in equitation science and given me the knowledge, skills and confidence to start my own horse training and coaching business. Additionally, it has created access to an international community of progressive, like-minded horse people dedicated to using evidence-based knowledge to improve the horse’s welfare, and interactions between horse and trainer. This fosters continued learning and career enhancement. To be able to train horses and coach people is a dream come true.”

“I spent many years searching for the Holy Grail of horse training and, after travelling throughout Europe, I found the answer right here in Australia. Equitation science and learning theory allow me to objectively view any interactions between people and horses, identify where any errors may have occurred and, most importantly, provide me with the tools to fix them. The Diploma of Equitation Science has been invaluable. Equitation science has revolutionised the way I train, handle horses and coach riders. No other method is subject to the same scrutiny and peer-review. As a scientist, I appreciate that I now train and coach using proven methods, rather than those founded on hearsay and good marketing. I have been set upon a path from which I will not deviate.”
