Equine diplomas

World-class facilities and expertise

Join the world’s largest equestrian college. Our equine students do so much more than study an academic course.

You'll benefit from world-class equine facilities to strengthen your learning and employability. This includes competition arenas that host international events, as well as commercial equine therapy and rider performance centres.

You may well use these facilities as part of your learning or you could gain work experience with our specialist teams. Students have recently worked as part of our events teams and supported our specialist staff in our performance and therapy centres. Our facilities attract a range of equestrian athletes, from novice to professional - you may well meet some of the stars of the equine world.

All of our courses are very practical in nature and include work experience both on campus and out in industry, including at top yards and riding centres and in marketing and commercial roles. You'll find everything, from an introduction to horse care and riding right through to a more in-depth knowledge of horse management, business, science and equitation.

As an equine student at Hartpury, you'll be taught by lecturers who have competitive and industry experience. You’ll also have the opportunity to study for BHS exams, compete in college competitions, go on study trips, attend guest lectures and presentations and you could apply to be part of our unique Grooms’ Academy.

Whether you choose to bring your own horse to Hartpury or not, there are plenty of opportunities to ride, including with our Hartpury Equestrian Club and our riding school.
