Equine diplomas

World-class facilities and expertise

Join one of the world’s largest equine colleges and benefit from world-class facilities to strengthen your learning and employability. Through our unique Hartpury Certificate, you’ll develop the knowledge, skills and experience that employers or universities are looking for.

Our equine diplomas in horse care, equine business and equine management include riding and non-riding options. Depending on your level of study and achievements, your diploma could equate to enough tariff points for university study or prepare you for a rewarding career in the equine industry.

With world-class competition facilities, horse riding simulators, equine therapy, rider performance and research centres, we offer the perfect learning environment. Field trips and business experience will strengthen your learning, and help you to stand out from the crowd when progressing onto your next steps.

Developing employability
As part of our unique Hartpury Certificate, you’ll undertake a work placement. We have partnerships with over 2,000 employers across the UK – many of our student’s progress life-long careers with their placement provider. Alongside this, you’ll gain invaluable commercial experience on our busy livery yard and have opportunities to volunteer with our commercial businesses and events teams.

Developing life skills

We’ll support you to become the best version of yourself. As part of our Hartpury Certificate, our teaching and support teams will help to develop your confidence, resilience, and independence to prepare you for your next steps after college.

World-class equine facilities

You don’t have to ride to study with us.

However, some students choose to bring their own horses or use one of our 60 loan horses.

Students also have the opportunity to ride as part of our Equestrian Club. If you’re a talented equine athlete, you may be eligible to join our Equine Academy and progress your professional riding career alongside your studies.
