With stabling for up to 60 horses there is also the opportunity to bring you own horse with you. Guided by our specialist staff and expert guest lecturers you’ll learn a detailed understanding of the equine industry and the skills needed to work in it. As part of your course you will undertake commercial experience, where you will learn and develop practical skills that will be vital for your future in equine management.

Guided by our expert lecturers you will advance your knowledge of horse management and competition preparation and care. Through theoretical and practical learning you will develop knowledge of horse fitness, behaviour and maintenance as well as equine science and health and disease.
