Develop your horse husbandry and management skills
Horse ownership is flourishing in many countries.
While owning a horse is a dream for many people, it is a dream that comes with responsibilities. It requires that you have knowledge and understanding of the different aspects of caring for these intelligent animals.
This course provides important information on horse ownership and care.
The equine industry is bigger than what most people might realize today. It employs large numbers of people and horses found in more industries than you might realize, including:
- Recreational Riding
- Mounted Police
Note that each module in the Certificate in Equine Husbandry is a short course in its own right, and may be studied separately.
What Should You Study?
Let us help you make the Best Decision for You!
We have a huge amount of equine experience on our staff; from Lyn Quirk and Peter Douglas who have been teaching horse riding for decades, to Anna Jones and Cheryl Wilson who have outstanding background working in the equine industry across the UK. These people are passionate, highly qualified horse people with a fantastic range of very relevant experience.
LEARN FROM THEIR EXPERIENCE
We've always found it is better to communicate with someone before they enrol. If we understand your passions, capabilities and ambitions, we can help you map out a course of action to give you the best chance of achieving your goals.
AFTER YOUR STUDIES
Completing this course will not only expand your knowledge and understanding of horses, but you will be more aware of the nature and scope of the equine industry; you will notice opportunities that you may have not seen before, and you will look at horses differently.

- Stable Hand
- Track Rider
- Animal Attendant
- Stud Worker
- Horse Breeder
- Horse Trainer
- Event Organiser
- Farm Manager
