What will I learn?
This course has been carefully designed to help you build strong practical skills alongside applied knowledge to maximise your employability. This practical emphasis is reflected in the course content, with units in equitation, husbandry and training, while other units focus on your applied scientific knowledge and business skills.

Using all the resources of our flagship Equine Centre, you will experience riding, running events and shows and completing assignments and research projects. Research projects focus on the management of a commercial sized centre, while external study visits and an international study tour increase industry exposure. Work placements throughout the course complete the picture.

Where can I go from here?
Many FdSc graduates choose to join the BSc Top-up programme in Equestrian Performance Management. Sparsholt graduates enjoy a range of careers in teaching, livery centres, polo yards, racing and studs, including competition rider, groom, riding instructor, stud worker and racing stable manager.
