Riding, Ethology & Coaching

Home: Welcome

REC Equestrian Academy offers full-time and online SETA accredited skills programmes and we offer training for the EQASA Certificate (external). The skills programmes are designed for horse lovers and are aimed at providing a specialised education for those who wish to make a career working with horses.  The  courses have grown out of a demand by young people for a facility where they can spend time learning about the care and keep of horses.  They are given the opportunity to develop their riding skills to the level they are capable of.


The part time courses are popular with horse owners who wish to improve their knowledge of horse care and handling of the horse both mounted and dismounted.

The syllabus is designed to equip candidates with the knowledge and skills to sit for CATHSSETA and AGRISETA endorsed assessments at REC, as well as the EQASA assessments.


REC Equestrian Academy is currently the only independently accredited SETA provider offering these skills programmes. We are proud and privileged to be able to assist youngsters in following their dreams of working in the industry, as well as being able to improve the qualities of the horses’ lives that our graduates will come into contact with.
