Unit Standard 3: 1624

The third unit standard you will be working on is unit 1624, Care for a horse's paddock, and horses in a paddock. You can download the unit standard here.

This unit standard is at level three, and is worth six credits. There are two assignments required to achieve this unit standard.

The reading and study for these assignments are primarily self-directed. You are expected to use the library and the internet to learn as much information as you can. You will find the Pony Club manuals 1 and 2 are a valuable resource for this assignment.

Reading One: Handling horses on small acreage
Reading Two: Five Steps to a great horse pasture (an American resource, but much is relevant)

You are expected to use your own knowledge to answer the questions, to look for answers online, and to ask experienced adults whom you may know.

You can download your assignment and print it out if you wish. Your assignment may be handwritten or done on the computer according to your own preference or your school's recommendation.

1624 Assignment One
1624 Assignment Two

Once you are finished your assignments, you can hand them in at Kyrewood, mail them to Kyrewood Equestrian Centre, 108 Oroua Road, RD 5, Palmerston North, scan and email them to Kyrewood, or hand them in to your Gateway teacher according to the instructions your school has given you.
