Careers Training and Colleges

People are able to get involved in the equine industry in a variety of ways, although training and qualifications are increasingly important for anyone considering a career with horses. Experience can be obtained whilst in full-time education by taking riding lessons and assisting at stables or on a farm. Full-time working experience, training and/or a full-time course leading to a qualification can follow on from this.

If you have no formal qualifications but are able to demonstrate an interest and enthusiasm for working with horses, there may well be opportunities available. In many areas school leavers have the option to set out on a career within the equine industry via full or part-time vocational routes that combine practical work-based and classroom based training.

There is a wide variety of jobs available for those who want a career working with horses and sound advice on how to get started can be found on the Lantra website.
