This teaching resource available on a reliable and renowned organisation’s website (Dual Professional Training) suits the needs of intermediate and upper-intermediate students who study Hungarian as a foreign language, and native Hungarians in Teacher Education. This video develops their listening skills and at the same time expands students’ technical related vocabulary. It also gives accessible information on the topic. This resource assists both the lecturer, who can use this video with students in the classroom, and students who, rather autonomously, can also explore it. The teaching source is challenging due to the overall information and comprehensive description of the equestrian therapist’s profession. The thorough overview not only describes the profession but denotes the potential participants who can take part in the training.
