This Level 3 apprenticeship will help you prepare for a more supervisory role, which could include planning horses’ diet, nutrition and health plans. During the course you will learn how to promote and maintain the health and well-being of horses, prepare horses for work, maintain their health and well-being during transportation and consider health and safety.

Apprenticeships allow you to work while gaining a nationally recognised qualification at the same time, so why not combine your love of horses with earning money.

I studied Equine Studies and now work as a mounted police officer for Avon and Somerset Police. Having joined Devon and Cornwall Police in 2007 as a police officer, I pursued my ambition to become a mounted police officer in 2015 with Avon & Somerset Police. Equine is very much worth doing if you want to work with horses, it is a good course to help you expand your knowledge and improve your riding ability. You will thoroughly enjoy it if you want a practical hands on course.
