We are proud to work with a range of partners throughout the Equine sector. Together, we work to promote skills development and career opportunities, particularly for young people within the industries.

We work with our sub-contractor The Saddlery Training Centre, based in Salisbury to provide Saddlery apprenticeships throughout England.
The Saddlery Training Centre opened in September 2000 and has since become established as the only centre to offer the Modern Apprenticeship Scheme and also its bespoke range of courses which aim to support those in the trade whether they are apprentices or saddlers wishing to update their skills and gain qualifications.
