Case Study - Rob Barker.jpg

What I do: I’m an international event rider who also regularly competes in British Dressage and British Show jumping but I also run my own stables in Upleadon Village, Gloucestershire. I enjoy bringing on young horses and working with more experienced rides too, and I aim to become one of Britain’s top event riders.

How Hartpury helped to get me there: My course gave me great background knowledge of the theory aspects such as nutrition and biomechanics, which was invaluable in enabling me to train horses for competition. The student livery was also fantastic for me and the facilities are outstanding. I have no doubt that my years at Hartpury made me the rider I am today.
