They will support you to make evidence-based assessments of horse and rider welfare in a range of contexts including during training and competition.
Combining learning, research and commercial activities, our facilities will enable you to apply theory to practice as part of real-world projects, using the latest technologies. These include 230 horses on campus, an Equine Therapy Centre, Equestrian Centre hosting over 200 events each year, and an Equine Assisted Activities Arena.
