Level 2 Assessment

In order to accommodate the varying abilities and desires of participants, assessment of the Level 2 clinic is in two main parts. Horsemanship will be assessed mainly during the practical sessions but also through information participants provide as part of the Workbook. Client Work will be assessed during the activity sessions but also through information provided by participants in the Workbook. The Workbooks must be completed and returned within 2 months of completion of the clinic. Participants may successfully complete both parts of Level 2 or either the Horsemanship or Client Work. They will be awarded Level 2 status accordingly – Level 2 Advanced, Level 2 Horsemanship or Level 2 Client.
