Students on our equine studies courses always seem to have a lot of fun, although the work with horses is physically demanding and the course work can be challenging.
It is however easy to learn about something you really enjoy doing, particularly when there are so many like-minded people around you. Each course has the opportunity to go away on study tours or to attend big events.
Last year, for example, the HNC in Equine Studies group spent a week in Ireland and the HND group went abroad to Germany to learn about the horse industry on the continent. We have inter-college and inter-course competitions every year where the emphasis is on fun and gaining experience and the many extra-curricular training opportunities on offer (such as Equifit) are eagerly taken up by our students.
From a new international standard indoor arena, to all-weather gallops and a BE cross-country course, the campus is investing heavily. Our stables include tack rooms, clipping and shoeing areas and a horse walker, and house 30 horses, from cobs to ex-racehorses.
The campus also has a DIY livery yard for students who want to bring their own horse.
