Horse owners and riders are increasingly recognising the need to promote the health and well-being of their horses to maximise performance. This programme will enable students to develop excellent practical management skills as well as provide sound academic knowledge in order to promote equine health, fitness, and performance in both the commercial and competition settings.

The programme includes a range of modules designed to offer both technical expertise and practical competence in the management, whilst allowing the students to select pathways suited to sport science & coaching or equine therapy & rehabilitation specialisms. Pathways are designed to support progression onto the final year of BSc (Hons) programmes in either Equine Sport Science & Coaching or Equine Therapy & Rehabilitation, respectively.

Events typically include competitions; three annual British Event Horse Trials held at Lincoln Showground and Bishop Burton, regular affiliated British Show Jumping events and annual British Dressage Regional competition, as well as numerous BHS examination days. The equine centres offer a breath of enrichment opportunities to further develop skills including riding clubs, equine academy, and BUCS teams.

During the first year of the programme, all students undertake an external work placement which benefits from our extensive industry links in support with gaining placements, this may include local equine charities, equine veterinary centres and a range of equine facilities across a range of sport disciplines.
