Educational excellence

Our equine students do so much more than study an academic course. They incorporate balanced theoretical lectures with hands-on, practical sessions in our leading and internationally renowned facilities. Our facilities attract a range of equestrian athletes, from novice to professional - you may well meet some of the stars of the equine world. All of our courses are very practical in nature and include work experience both on-campus and out in the industry, including at top yards and riding centres and in marketing and commercial roles. You'll find everything, from an introduction to horse care and riding right through to a more in-depth knowledge of horse management, business, science and equitation.

In addition to a busy calendar of national and unaffiliated competitions, highlights include the Hartpury International Festival of Dressage, Showjumping Spectacular, and Hartpury International Horse Trials.

Our major equestrian events are often used as a platform for other international competitions including Olympic, Paralympic, World, and European Championships.
