    Can you not do one through the Open University? At least then you know they won't pinch your money and do one!

    I have some paper and a printer...I can make you a certificate. :lol:

    Have a look around on the tinterweb and see if there are any reviews or anything. Then give them a ring and see what it involves. :)

    Maybe instead of forking out however much money, you could go and volunteer at a Horse centre or something. I know you don't get the piece of paper, but at least you can say you have worked with them. :)
