This course reflects the growing awareness of the need to develop a greater understanding of equine behaviour. This course covers all areas of equine behaviour, health and welfare, offering an extensive range of subjects from anatomy and physiology to equitation science. The course will help you build the fundamental knowledge of behaviour and physiology – as well as the laboratory skills – needed to optimise the welfare of horses in our care, allowing them to thrive and perform as required in industry.
Why choose this course? You'll be based at our Brackenhurst Campus where you'll benefit from our extensive Equestrian Centre. Throughout the course you'll use the centre to gain the practical and research skills needed for careers in the equine industry.
You'll benefit from regular lectures and demonstrations from equine industry guest speakers and professionals.
We offer sport scholarships to elite athletes across a range of sports, including high-level riders.
Your course complements study towards the internationally recognised British Horse Society (BHS) examinations and United Kingdom Coaching Certificate (UKCC).
You'll get the opportunity to take part in field trips to a range of equestrian and research establishments.
You can spend six months on international exchange with a partner university in Australia or Canada during your second year of study. The equine team have close links with the University of Guelph, Canada.
We run a Rider / Groom's Academy for all students across further and higher education to support talented riders and grooms to realise their potential whilst continuing their academic studies.
We offer student livery.
We also have an optional international equine management module which runs as a ten day field course in Switzerland based at the Swiss National Stud. The field course covers the anatomical and physiological basis of equine reproduction and evaluates the variation of worldwide management practices, due to sport and local environmental factors both in a general and breeding related context.
