Horse Care

The Equine industry is a very large and diverse industry that offers opportunities working in areas such as livery yards and riding schools through to Stud and Racing yards.

Horses require skilled attention and devoted well trained staff to care for them. This profession also requires a great deal of dedication as horses have to be looked after 365 days a year.
