Horseware Academy is developed and run exclusively by Horseware Ireland.

Register and Create an Account
Any visitor can view the website, but to become a participant of Horseware Academy, you must register your details such as name, address and email with us. This enables you to gain access to our full learning platform, to save your progress and to determine how you compare to colleagues and the industry.

You can access your Personally Identifiable Information and confirm that it remains correct and up-to-date or choose whether or not you wish to receive material from us and visiting your user account page. For so long as your account remains active (engagement within a 12-month time frame), you will have access to the course materials and website features specified on our website. You undertake to ensure that all information provided by you in relation to your Horseware Academy Account is and will continue to be accurate, current and complete at all times and that you will maintain and update your information to keep it accurate, current and complete.

Course Modifications
Horseware Academy is an evolving platform with new courses becoming available on a regular basis. We may add or remove functions, features, or requirements, and we may suspend or stop the Horseware Academy platform, or any of its lessons, altogether. Accordingly, Horseware Ireland may terminate your use of Horseware Academy for any reason.

Horseware Ireland has a vast range of products which differ by sub brand, style and features. Within this there is also both a core range and a seasonal range. To encourage continuous learning and to account for the regular changes to keep the Academy up to date, we do not release all the lessons at once but rather on a rolling basis. Depending on your email settings, we will notify you when new lessons become available. You are encouraged to check back regularly to see if new lessons have been released.

While we take pride in our courses on Horseware Academy, unexpected events do occur. We reserve the right to cancel or remove a course, or to modify any course content or the assessment requirement or weight of any course.

Certificates of Achievement
You will receive a digital certificate when you successfully complete levels 1 – 4. Upon completion of levels 5 and 6, you will receive a Certificate of Achievement from us, which will be mailed to you at the address provided at registration. The certification levels range between 15 and 25 lessons per grade. They differ due to a variety of factors including complexity, range of products, seasonal influences and relevance to a particular topic.

There are six certification levels:
Level 1: Beginner
Level 2: Intermediate
Level 3: High Intermediate
Level 4: Advanced
Level 5: Specialist
Level 6: Expert

Your Horseware Academy certification will remain valid for 12 months. When the certification expires, you'll need to retake all courses within the module to keep your certification.

Prize Draw
Every successful completion of a course is eligible to be entered into a bi-annual draw to win $500/€500/£400 of Horseware Ireland products. All users who have successfully completed a full course will be entered into the next draw provided they meet the terms below. For those eligible, each completed course will be counted as one entry into the draw. The bi-annual prize draw runs from 1st May to 31st December 2019, 1st January to 30th June 2020, 1st July to 31st December 2020, 1st January to 30th June 2021 and so on.

To be eligible to be entered to win, you must grant us permission to contact you via email and subscribe to our newsletter. In addition to granting us permission to contact you vie email for the purposes of the draw, you are also granting us permission to make your name public should you be selected as the winner. Winners are selected on a random basis, and any aspect of the prize draw is final and binding and no correspondence will be entered into.

The winner will be notified within fourteen days of the draw and will be supplied with a product list from which to select their prize(s). The winner must respond within seven days confirming their address and selected products up to the value of $500/€500/£400 depending on their market (US, ROW, UK). If a winner has not responded by this time, then the winner will forfeit all rights to the prize and another winner will be selected by random draw. The prize for the winner is non-exchangeable, non-transferable and no cash alternative is offered. If for any reason a product is not available, Horseware Ireland reserves the right to substitute another similar prize for it, at its sole discretion, of equal or higher value. Employees of Horseware Ireland and their immediate family, are not entitled to enter the prize draw.

The promoter of the prize draw is Horseware Ireland Ltd, Finnabair Business Park, Dundalk, Co. Louth A91 KF5F, Ireland.
