SACE - Equine Studies

The South Australian Department of Education is now offering students the opportunity to undertake formal training in Equine studies, with their own school's assistance and the use of Equestrian Australia educational materials.

This exciting development allows students to undertake up to eight modules of Equestrian Australia’s nationally recognised courses and on completion be awarded SACE credits.

All modules are self paced with assessment by a qualified Coach Educator/EA Skills Specific Coach. 

Limited booklets for Introductory Level are available to school students enrolling with SACE at a price of $35 each plus $15 p&h from the ESA Office while stock lasts.

Alternatively, digital copies can be purchased onine - CLICK HERE

If purchasing online, it is the 'Introductory Horse Management' & 'Introductory Riding' resources that are required to begin.

These modules provide an important stepping stone into many career paths within the Australian Equine Industry as well as consolidating knowledge that will aid students in pursing tertiary qualifications in Equine studies. 

Students enrolling can train with any coach but must be assessed by an EA Registered Coach Educator or Skill Specific Trainer Assessor. Find a full list of Coaches, Coach Educators & SSTA's - HERE

Each module has 10 SACE credits or one unit and are awarded under the SACE - Community Learning Program
