Whatever your experience we have a course to help you start your career within the equine industry.
Do you have little or no experience in a working environment? If so a traineeship could be for you?
Traineeships are a part of a Government initiative to help school leavers and young people with little or no experience get their foot in the door and start developing the right skills. You’ll receive training from professionals and build the foundations for a successful career in the equine environment.
We strive to deliver quality, hands-on training to young people and adults, giving them a strong foundation for a rewarding career.
As the leading skills trainer in the equestrian sector, we are the preferred training provider for British Showjumping, British Dressage, British Eventing and The Showing Council. That means we’re able to offer apprenticeships in some of the top yards in the country: Eilberg Dressage, Catherston Stud, Caron Roberts, Edward Equestrian, West Kingston Stud, Berkshire Riding Centre and Nick Gauntlett.
We are committed to helping you complete your apprenticeship, in addition to the expert and highly skilled staff who will work with you throughout your apprenticeship we also offer a number of great additional benefits.
