There's never been a better time to study and work in this field, as the equine industry is growing year on year. This two-year course offers the mix of practical and theoretical knowledge you need to take on a variety of roles.
You'll learn practical skills like yard, stable and grassland management. You'll also learn about riding and horsemanship, instructional techniques and of course about the horses themselves.
In addition to that, you'll gain more general business knowledge, including event management, supervisory and organisational skills and an introduction to marketing.
The course offers Riding or Non-Riding options. Both versions run at Oatridge in West Lothian, and our Aberdeen campus offers the non-riding version from 2021.
Entry requirements are the same for both, apart from the need to prove competent riding ability.
