    1. Well, I told my parents about my courses, and me getting 100% on every test, and because of my bad grades at school, they were surprised at how enthusiastic I am about it. I think they might want a full time horse school, so I look good enough for a college scholarship! But hey, I’m only 12!

    2. I enjoyed the test and did get one wrong answer, which I am not sure why I but the wrong reply down, when I knew as soon as I did it, it was wrong.

    3. Its August now, but still not seeing 2nd semester…..I took all the classes and got 100% on all quizes in july for the first semester…

    4. For a new person to riding, Session 100 was great.
      This will give me confidance in bathing and brading and to know that pulling the mane hairs do not hurt the horse as much as I throught it would.

    5. Micayla, all you need to do is join Club Horse and sign up for Horse Health/Grooming College. You read the articles and answer the quizzes every month–at your own pace.
      Jessica, I think that session 100 is the first and current session. It contains several courses that are updated each month.

    6. I was enrolled in the horse groming college and up to date on all my classes now all my grades are gone. Can someone please restore what I had completed on my account.

    7. I was all up to date and mine is gone too. Seems to be a common problem. Has happened to me many times. I don’t get it.

    8. The grades disappear when they are tabulating totals and making up the diplomas and whatnot, should reappear soon- has happened that way on doc and cat channel, as well as for the health college

    9. I was enrolled in the grooming college and have not been able to sign back in. I thought that I had completed all the classes. Now I am not sure. What might I have done wrong?

    10. I have completed the Grooming college and now I cant enroll in the Health College, WHY?? And it says I dont have a diplolma in the grooming college and my test scores are not being fixed after I fix them like in the ‘meet the dean’ video told me you could do.

    11. Hi, Abigail.
      There are still two more months of Grooming College to go. The diplomas will be available in June after the session has ended.
      If you have any other questions or problems, please send us a note using the form at HorseChannel.com/Contact
      Thanks!

    12. I’m pretty sure that you can enroll in the horse colleges at any time. You need to get a horse channel account first. Try that and go from there rob.

    13. When can the course be enrolled to? Are there set dates? And do you have to be a member of HorseChannel.com? I saw the add in Horse Illustrated magazine and am extremely interested in adding this education to my career path.

    14. Carolyn~
      Yes you do need to be a member. And you don’t get a credit for this. 🙂 It’s just here so that you can learn about horse grooming and health.Everything is yours for the taking, there are no set dates, just go where you want to!
