Horse placements: Why do you need photos and videos of me for my application?

Knowledge of handling horses is required to participate in this program. Photos and videos of you interacting with horses are needed to demonstrate this.

The photos and videos can show you working with horses (grooming, saddling, etc.) and/or riding (walk, trot, canter, and potentially jumping).

If you don't have recent pictures or a video, you could book a riding lesson at a local riding school and have photos taken there.

In the photos and videos, please wear appropriate riding attire to demonstrate to the horse farm owners that safety and responsibility are a priority (e.g., wearing a helmet while riding and suitable footwear). Some horse farms may react negatively if they see participants riding without a helmet and proper riding equipment or performing tricks with the horses (e.g., standing on the horse).

You will receive a document from us explaining how these photos and videos should look.
