Guide to the Equestrian Centre

In order to provide experience to students in a commercial setting, all of our students complete a number of hours assisting on the yard, managing and caring for our herd of College horses. Students follow a duty rota and routine assisting with yard chores at the beginning and end of each working day, in addition to assisting for full days at the weekends.

Students are also encouraged to become actively engaged with the preparation and management of competitions and events as part of their work experience module.

Given the fantastic array of resources available for students to use

The Centre boasts a 60m x 40m indoor arena with landscape mirrors, galleried seating, commentary box and PA System; a competition size floodlit outdoor arena and a full set of BS approved show jumps. The arenas are complimented by a cross-country schooling paddock, estate wide hacking.

Horses used by our students for both practical and ridden sessions are carefully selected by our team of experts and are either owned by the College or are on working livery or loan agreements. Our horses provide a variety of experiences to our students with diverse backgrounds across the disciplines allowing our students plenty of opportunities to develop their skills.

In addition to being used for lesson delivery, our horses also provide a wide-ranging research population for student led projects and dissertations.

Students also have the opportunity to hone their skills and develop their core strength and fitness on 'Phoenix', our mechanical horse.

As one of the only facilities in the UK to have an equine water treadmill, straight line swimming pool and cold-water salt spa all under one roof the Therapy Centre provides an excellent learning resource for students while also operating commercially drawing in clientele from across the country.
