Level 3 Subsidiary Diploma Horse Management

Overview

This course gives you the opportunity to gain a good grounding in key aspects of horse management and equitation (if the riding option is chosen). The course is a mixture of theory and practical units.

Studying the theory units will ensure that you have an understanding of the importance of correct horse management and how this impacts on equine performance while the practical units will teach the skills that are required to work in an equine yard looking after a variety of horses.

You will be involved in the daily care of the horses through yard duties to develop the practical skills necessary to gain employment within the equine industry.  You will therefore need to live in Hartpury accommodation during your studies.

Hartpury’s outstanding equine facilities include:

• Four indoor arenas, including our multi-million pound Indoor Championship Arena complex with seating for 600

• Three outdoor arenas, including a world class championship arena

• Stabling for 230 horses

• Equine Veterinary and Therapy Centre, including aquafit and high speed treadmills, solarium and other therapy systems

• Cross-country courses up to FEI***
