5 YRS (PT)
Why choose this course?
Over £4 billion is spent on equestrianism every year and the relationship between horse and human is central to the equestrian industry’s development. This unique course combines equine science with welfare management covering the areas of equine behaviour and cognition, bioveterinary science, equine learning, equine health and reproduction, and animal behaviour modification.
Based at our rural Northop campus, you will have access to excellent practical BHS approved equestrian facilities which feature stables, a tack room, feed room, indoor and outdoor arenas, two large fields and a paddock for grazing and riding. There is also a cross-country course nearby.
Additionally practical experience is developed through work placements and visits to riding schools, equine welfare charities, veterinary surgeries, behaviourists and the mounted police force.
Free training for British Horse Society examinations are provided alongside the degree, together with £100 towards an equine vocational examination of choice.
