Horse Management (Middlesbrough Centre) Level 3


A step up from the Level 2 diploma, the Level 3 course offers the opportunity to investigate a range of more advanced horse management topics both in the classroom and practically.


Course Themes:

• Equine feeding and health
• Horse tack and equipment
• Horse behaviour and welfare
• Preparing horses for presentation
• Anatomy and physiology
• Riding horses on the flat and over fences (Optional)
• Rehabilitation and therapy
• Stable and yard management
• Work experience
• English and maths where applicable

Your work is assessed continually throughout the course, this could be through practical work, theory and riding as well as written assignments.

Middlesbrough students will access external equine facilities from across the Tees.

Entry Requirements

Normally four GCSEs at grade C or above, which should ideally include English, Maths and Science as applicable to the individual course (new GCSE grading levels 4 to 9) or an equivalent Level 2 qualification at Merit or higher.

For all courses involving horse riding modules, entry is subject to an evaluation of your riding ability and fitness levels. It is usual that we have a weight limit of 16 stone for these elements of the course.
