Just like the equine industry itself, there is never a dull day on our equine courses. Based at our fantastic Common Leys Farm Stud you will be immersed in the day to day life of a working thoroughbred stud and equine centre. Dependent on your course, a normal day could involve yard duties, developing handling and routine care skills, riding practice in one of the outdoor arenas, running competitions and studying anatomy and physiology in our purpose built science labs! We have courses in Horse Management, Equine Science, Horse Care and Riding.
