Turn your passion for horses into a successful career.
If you’re passionate about horses but you’re unsure how they can be part of your future, our range of courses provide a broad insight into the wider equine industry.
You’ll be based at our highly commended BHS approved Training and Assessment Centre, which has all the facilities you would expect from a professional yard. Our team of expert staff – many with elite international experience – will provide training in all aspects of the modern-day horse industry.
As well as learning about horse management, you can choose to focus on equine science, rehabilitation, business management, rural events management or equitation.
You don’t even have to ride if you don’t want to. You can concentrate on equine business or principles of competition grooming or join our weekly riding lessons with our skilled instructors to develop your riding ability at your own pace.

“We’ve both had many wins in the showring and have competed successfully at HOYS and the Royal International Horse Show with ridden and working hunters, show hacks and cobs. We also educate young horses, prepare horses for sale and do stunt riding for films!
“Taking over the family showing business was a big achievement for us, and our Reaseheath education, both at diploma and degree level, played a big part in our success. We suggest anyone who wants to progress within the equestrian industry should do the same. Science based knowledge is essential. Learning about anatomy influences the way we school our horses and understanding how nutrition affects performance is crucial at a professional level.
“Harry has now moved into the all weather equestrian surfaces market – which shows how versatile these qualifications are and how many different opportunities are offered in the equine industry.”
