When do my online horse classes commence?


Once your payment has been processed, you will automatically gain access to

* Orientation into your horse courses online (please complete this first)

* Downloadable student workbooks to commence your online equestrian courses

* Extension lessons/ homework

* Video tutorial giving your access to online equine classes

* Online horse classes given in Power Point Presentations

Within a short period of time, you will receive your own secure webpage with up to twelve months (depending on your payment method) home equine study materials, assessments and other relevant information


Who will supervise my practical horse care, horse riding and equestrian instructor training?

If you already have a horse riding instructor or equestrian coach, they will probably be automatically qualified to supervise your practical horse management and horseriding training. Other people that may be qualified to supervise are the owner/manager of your horse riding stables, or some-one else you know who has considerable experience with horses.

If you are at school, (depending on your Study Horses .com course) your teacher may be able to supervise your practical assessments. You will also be required to 'self assess' and 'peer assess' your horse course practical activities. A 'peer' may be some-one with around the same experience as you with horses. They could be another Study Horses .com student, one of your horse riding friends or someone from your horse riding barn. They act as a 'mirror' and mark off your checklist as you complete your practical horse activities.


Can I really gain an educational qualification from an Online Horse School?

Yes, absolutely!

Unlike many other online equine schools, Study Horses .com is an accredited educational institution where you will receive official recognition from the Department of Education, Training and the Arts. Students will receive an Accredited Educational Qualification or an Accredited Statement of Attainment on completion of every one of our equine elearning courses.



All of our online equine courses are from fully accredited qualifications and we are Nationally Recognised to deliver this training. These home study horse courses have been adapted to the needs of the international Equestrian Industry

Are these courses recognized internationally?

Yes, Australian educational qualifications are very highly regarded in other countries, and often held in higher regard than their own qualifications

If your country has Equestrian and Equine qualifications, they may be able to grant RPL (Recognition of Prior Learning) from the qualification you receive when you graduate from Study Horses .com into their Horse Management, Horse Riding and Horseriding Instructor qualifications 

These distance elearning courses are taught in Queensland, Australia. Because they are taught by distance education, horse industry students can access them around the world and still receive their educational qualification.


Can I do any short courses about horses in your distance learning equine school?

Yes, we have customised our courses into smaller 'mini horse courses' where you can complete one before going onto another. If you are just learning about horses and ponies, some examples you may start with are

* Distance learning horse care (Ideal for parents or partners of horse lovers)

* Distance learning basic horse riding before progressing onto

* Distance learning equestrian riding

If you already have previous equine experience you may decide to enrol into one of our more advanced equine courses such as

* Distance learning equine science or advanced horse management program or

* Distance learning equine management for horse business owners

Students who complete a short course or a partial full course will be granted a 'Statement of Attainment' when they complete their short courses. This Statement of Attainment is recognised as an Educational Qualification

Who is Study Horses .com and Ausintec Academy

Ausintec Academy (previously Caboolture Equestrian Centre) has now been delivering Vocational Education for budding equestrians for almost 20 years.

Over that period of time, we have built strong teaching systems for working in the horse industry that allow students to safely progress step by step into a professional role within the International Equine Industry

Many International students were from non-English speaking backgrounds so we have customised our courses with simple step by step instructions written into plain English that are easy to read and understand.

At the original campus, students included

* children riding ponies

* adult beginners learning about horse care and horse riding (including parents and partners of existing horse riding students)

* competitive equestrian riders in showjumping, dressage, horse trials, combined training, showing, jumping equitation and pony club

* beginner horse riding instructors and equestrian coaches

* qualified professional equestrian coaches training towards higher qualifications


Our facilities and resources to learn about horses included a wide range of horses and equestrian equipment, air-conditioned classrooms and EFA and AHRC coaches teaching the programs, supported by regular elite level guest equestrian coaches

However many potential students from interstate, overseas and isolated communities were not able to access our classes and courses because of the location, time and family commitments as well as financial restrictions. They requested a flexible system that would fit into their needs.


We have now met those needs and now have an online equine school that delivers home study equine courses with online equine classes in

* Basic horse care

* Beginner horse riding safely and with confidence

* Preparation for your own horse

* Horse courses to prepare you to work in the horse industry quickly and efficiently

* Equestrian courses for competitive riders (dressage, showjumping, cross country, combined training, horse trials, show horse, jumping equitation)

* Safe trail riding

* Taking people out on trails safely

* Online equine science and advanced horse care

* Online equine management for horse associated businesses

* Courses in the equine industry for students working towards online equine degrees

Our Director personally understands the needs of Equine and Equestrian Professional Bodies and the education systems that they work within and has either written or had input into courses within these equestrian and equine education bodies

Australian Horse Riding Centres

* AHRC Coaching Qualifications

* AHRC Proficency Certificates

Equestrian Australia (Previously Equestrian Federation of Australia)

* EA/ EFA Equestrian Coaching Qualifications

* EA/ EFA Horse Management Certificates

* EA/ EFA Horse Riding Certificates

Service Skills Australia

* Equestrian Units in the Sport Industry Training Package

* Horse Riding Units in the Outdoor Recreation Training Package

In addition, she has studied within the British Horse Society system and several Australian Equine Education systems and as well has taught in the United States of America, United Kingdom, Australia, Asia and Europe so has an understanding of the different needs of horses and horse care in various parts of the world.

With a proven track record in training budding professionals, we have adopted our systems to implement these online courses. The latest software to support this innovative program has been put into operation and the team at Ausintec Academy/Study Horses .com are ready to go

We think that your courses are are exceptional, but what do other students say?

We have only tested our online courses on a limited number of students so far, but here is what they have had to say …




Good information as always.

Found the gait info really helpful as this is what I’m working on with my youngster at the moment and it really helped to reinforce what I need to be doing.

I am aiming towards giving riding lessons to beginners, and one target area I have is mature-aged beginner riders. The sequences give me some good ideas on how to introduce new systems to people that haven’t been doing this all their lives.

Belinda S









Very nice to refresh and test my memory.

Epp P









Good information. I’m enjoying the format.

I have had a great response from all of my questions. … you have given me plenty of feedback and kept me informed of all developments.
