Costs have changed!

We are now breaking up our clinics into sections – some are common to all, others are for a particular group …Those wanting both instructor and trail guide certifications need to be there for  the whole time, others need to be there either 3 or 4 days and 3 nights. This is a response to feedback from participants, and unfortunately also there is a price rise included.

The clinic cost for the general clinics  covering both instructor and trail guide certifications is $ 1900 (including GST) with attendance required  for 5 day 4 nights

For those only wanting instructor certification the clinic will run for 4 days and  3 nights and cost $1760 (including GST) This includes those wanting  Instructor of Horse Handling qualifications.

For those only wanting Trail Guide certification  the clinic will run for 3 and 1/2  days and 3 nights and cost $1700 (including GST)

For those only needing Instructor of Horse Handling it will be 3 days and 3 nights and cost $1650 (including GST)

Fees include :

  • Food, accommodation (in a residential campsite environment), supply of horses & tack, clinic paperwork
    certification (as attained), Horse Safety Australia membership for three years,  and the opportunity to obtain 2 units of competency from a Registered Training Organisation ( The South Australian Sports Federation Inc: RTO ID. 2280)

    • SISOEQU001 Handle horses
    • SISOEQU010 Identify hazards, assess and control safety risks in horse handling and riding activities

 We consider these units to be fundamental to safe handling of horses and the supervision of others as they interact with horses. They cover horse behaviour, risk management,
horse and rider assessments and matching the horse to the rider.

  • Part of the clinic paperwork includes a USB stick with resources for running a horse business (application forms, waivers, accident reports and much more!)

Please fill in and return the tax invoice in the registration form relating to the appropriate clinic, available for download  which can be found on the home page, and also above on this page.
There will be some paperwork to do before attending the clinic, to help provide evidence for us of your experience and knowledge in these areas. These materials will be sent to you  approximately three – six weeks prior to the clinic, after receiving your deposit. The balance of your fees will be due on the first day of the clinic.

Travel and Accommodation

You will be responsible for your own travel. Normally participants live-in and this is factored into the costs, as the clinic includes evening programs and often preparation time is needed for the next day’s activities so staying off site is not advised. (There is no reduction  in the fees for staying off site). Transfers can be made available, or directions using public transport to nearby railway stations, bus stops etc, to and  from the airport for interstate participants.

These will vary according to the qualification/s you are seeking.  The details are on the individual registration forms, and they vary from site to site depending on the day of the week they start, etc.
