Equine Care & Management
Equine Management Level 3 Extended Diploma
This course will include horse science, riding, and stable management, providing you with the knowledge and skills required for a career in the equine industry. You’ll gain practical riding experience on the flat and over jumps while studying towards the British Horse Society (BHS) examinations. We also offer a non-riding option for those that want to develop skills that could lead to a career in competition grooming or rehabilitation and therapy.
Our BHS-approved Equestrian Centre has stabling for 65 horses. There is even the option to keep your own horse here. It also features indoor and outdoor riding arenas, turnout fields, a horse walker and a mechanical horse simulator – great for perfecting your position.
