The Life Hack Course

Would you like to help teenagers and young adults who are not in education, employment or training? Then choose the Life Hack Equine Assisted Life and Work Skills program.  

Step 2

Get Certified

Your 5 day training retreat at our Scottish Borders centre will equip you with everything you need to go on and run one of our successful projects in your own setting. You can learn the equine assisted program of your choice inside out through theory lessons with the author and practice sessions with our herd of experienced therapy horses. You get to immerse yourself completely in the process, network with fellow learners and even work with real clients where possible.


 You don't need any prior experience or to be a With Horses Certified Practitioner to take part (although if you are, you get a 20% discount).

Step 3

Once trained, you can gain the With Horses Quality Mark and become an Approved Provider. For a £34.99

monthly fee (or £28 if you are a With Horses Certified Equine Assisted Learning Practitioner), you get:

  • unlimited access to online training for all of your volunteers and assistants.
