17th September, 2011 Practical Skills Development

How many IH students does it take to change a lightbulb?
I have just returned from a week in East Sussex where I was able to visit and work with Theoden every day. I arrived just in time to observe and appreciate the Practical Skills Development Course which is run by Jim (Goddard, IHRA) and fellow IHRA's Rosie Jones and Sandra Williams. This is a really excellent course for people hoping to become RA's themselves as it gives them a valuable opportunity to practice, maintain and hone their skills with all kinds of horses with all kinds of backgrounds. The next course is due to take place in April and it is the sort of course that people could go back to time and time again and learn something new each time. For details keep an eye on the IH magazine and the IH website.
