You could design your research to support you in your existing career or link it to an aspect of the equine industry into which you would like to progress. We can support you to develop a valuable research focus, if required.
The Equestrian Performance Research Arena at Hartpury College is fast developing its reputation for world-leading research. You’ll be supported to design and conduct your research by academically and industry-experienced lecturers and professors.
You’ll benefit from world-class research facilities on campus, including our commercial equine and rider performance centres, training arenas, scientific laboratories, as well as our livery centre with over 230 horses and riders at different levels, from Olympic and Paralympic athletes to novice riders. You may choose to focus your research on one of these contexts, or in an external location, relevant to your project.
Industry opportunities on this course are largely provided by our own businesses on campus (see facilities tab), as well as the networking facilitated through guest lecturers and field trips.
