If you have the drive and passion to work in the equine industry or move towards Higher Education in your near future and you want to gain outstanding knowledge and skills in all aspects of horse care, management and riding, then this is the course for you. The course offers the perfect balance between theory and practical based learning working alongside experienced and highly qualified staff. It is a two year course, it is equivalent to three A levels, and this exciting study programme ensures you can leave Kingston Maurward College with internationally recognised qualifications in the equine industry.

Students undertake two weeks external work experience in industry in both years, which allows students the opportunity to gain valuable experience with a wide range of specialist employment providers. Students are actively involved in weekly yard duties caring for the horses, on a rota basis, at Manor Stables, to develop and enhance vital practical skills needed for the course and employment in industry. Students develop supervisory and teamwork skills regarding the running our yard and all students are fully immersed in our commercial activities which includes assisting with running our equine competitions and riding school on duty weekends.

As a British Horse Society (BHS) examination centre, students also have the opportunity to take BHS exams (additional cost involved. )We actively encourage the students to take these additional assessments in order to gain further internationally recognised qualifications alongside their study programme which increases employment opportunities and strengthens their CV when ready to progress for life after Kingston Maurward. Throughout the course, whenever possible, there are visits from guest speakers, industry experts, masterclasses and trips to a variety of equine establishments and also events, for example, Badminton Horse trials and Olympia to just name a few.
