A Horse Course Of-course!

The majestic and noble horse has been one of mankind’s oldest and truest friends.  For thousands of years humans and equines have existed together enriched by the presence of the other.  Upon their sturdy backs people crossed continents to new and virgin lands.  With their great strength they pulled ploughs to break the land that fed us and their endless stamina was the very engine of commerce across the world*

A single horse was the wealth of a farmer, whereas a King or Sultan might count his wealth in fine purebred horses.  For all, from proud stallions to sturdy nags, had their worth.  And whenever there was news of tragedy or celebration, it was upon horseback that the news spread the quickest. 

​Sadly, Dobbin doesn’t quite get the same sort of respect nowadays ever since he and his like were replaced by the internal combustion engine.  Yet fondness for the dear equine remains in many of our hearts. That’s why ADL is pleased to offer a selection of courses for the horse lover and those aspiring to work with horses.
We have short courses in Horse care and the breeding of Horses, and for those looking to go a step further we offer a full diploma in Applied Management of Horses with a focus on Horse care.  Learn about proper management and care for these animals, correct nutrition, stabling, training and all the other essential information anyone working with horses will need.

Whether Stablehand, Stableowner, or unreformed horse lover take your passion one step further with ADL.
