Introduction

You will learn stable management, horse riding and Health and Safety when dealing with horses. You will learn to groom, muck out and feed the horses. You will learn to clean tack and find out about First Aid for horses. You will meet the vet and the farrier and see them working. You will learn to ride the college horses in our outdoor arena. You may enter local horse shows and perhaps win a rosette!

 

Learning, Knowledge and Skills

You could work on real projects within the college, supporting preparations for events such as the Horse and Dog show. You may work at a local stables to gain valuable experience of working with different horses or at a local animal park with minature ponies and donkeys.
