This module is designed for students following the Equitation specialism in the second year. Through a programme of supervisory duties at the College Equine Unit and supporting lectures/tutorials, students will further develop the skills necessary to manage an equestrian enterprise. Students will have the opportunity to apply theoretical management principles to the practical situation, and evaluate the relevance of these to modern equestrian enterprise management.
The module allows the accumulation of a suitable amount of practical supervisory experience, interspersed with periodic performance reviews. The training and development of a range of horses will be applied from the ground and on the flat and over jumps.
Key features include assessment of the horse's potential and development and implementation of a progressive training programme which suits its age, type, conformation, temperament and the discipline for which it is being trained.
