Best way to learn

Hey its been a while since I've posted.... sorry

So I started to learn to ride this summer and I've progressed to canter, I want to learn more about horses e.g. atomy and how to care for them, are there any short courses? I'd also like to do my BHS stage one, advice on how to prepare?

Oh and I'm also looking into equine dentistry or therapy

I'll try and come on here more as you all know a whole bunch :)

Thanks

Horseguyy

There are plenty of books. Start with the library so you don't have to purchase yet. Check Amazon.com for books and information. Look for articles on the Web. What is a BHS?

Agreed with checking books on Amazon. Many of them have been around for a great while, and been read and owned by many of us. Also, used copies are really inexpensive in softcover and sometimes hardcover.
I love to read text online, but I really like the physical books. My Eldest DD, an English Major is also a computer genius, self taught, but SHE prefers printed books, as well.
How about starting a thread here and looking for library suggestions?

Books can be helpful.
Quizlet is a good study tool - I use that for my 4-H horse skillathon team.

Best book I ever had---"Encyclopedia of the Horse". There is a fairly new edition of it available. Contains everything horseguyy is asking about.

Pony club books are great. Easy to read and a lot of information. And not just the manuals, there are a lot of different small ones on specific topics like buying a horse, lunging, shoeing, etc.

They have all sorts of training courses and exams, gives people a chance to get 'horsey' education, very useful for both horse owners, but also employers to help judge the capabilities of potential employees.
