Enabling students to gain a solid understanding of the equine industry in a vocational way, this course is divided between the classroom, practical sessions, visits and lecture demonstrations. 

You will be given the necessary management skills for a career within the equine industry and, by the end of the course, be particularly suited to work in the competition horse industry as either a coach, trainer, rider, stable manager, centre manager or events co-ordinator. The course can be structured to your individual experiences.

The work-based learning modules are a key feature of this course. You will be expected to complete a work-based project which occurs over an eight-week period at the end of the academic session. You will be supported in finding an appropriate placement and your progress within a working environment monitored.
