The £7bn UK equine industry needs to recruit 595,000 new employees by 2020. That’s creating a wealth of opportunities for talented, hardworking horse lovers.

Our equestrian centre has an Olympic size indoor arena, a cross-country course and stabling. It also has a horse walker, solarium and riding simulator. Our reputation for training technically competent, motivated students has helped some find work as far a field as Australia, Europe and America.

The East of England has a thriving equine industry and a global reputation for horse breeding. You will almost certainly have heard of Newmarket, in Suffolk, which calls itself ‘The home of British racing’. The town is also home to industry giants like the Animal Health Trust and Tattersalls, Europe’s leading bloodstock auctioneer.


Our college has built strong links with this industry over the years. This has enabled us to help students find work with local livery stables, Breeders, Trainers and Equine Charities. Our aim is to ensure all our students leave college ready for employment.
