The Science Behind Equitation

No Qualification • Part-time • Duchy College Stoke Climsland


This course has been designed to bring an understanding of the science behind the pressures placed on modern equines. You will explore which pressures can be overtly measured and which ones are less visible that we need to measure in the ridden horse. Equitation Science is a training process that uses evidence-based practice to train horses based on how they learn. Misunderstandings between horse and rider can arise through miscommunication and equitation science principles can help to improve the humans understanding of their horse when ridden. On this course you will learn: • What equitation science is • The importance and benefits of evidence based practice • How to improve your horses ridden responses to support their education • The importance of understanding Operant & classical conditioning in training for secure mutually beneficial horse/human relationships. This course will run from 09:00-16:00 Please note: this course is suitable for applicants aged 19+ only

MSc Equitation Science

Level 7 • Full-time • Duchy College Stoke Climsland


The welfare of equines used and cared for by humans is an area of increasing scrutiny. As a result there is a need for evidence based practice within equestrianism, and a requirement for highly trained and skilled scientists and practitioners who can assist in the understanding of the horse-human interactions and associated expectations. This MSc considers not only the use of equines within mainstream equestrianism, but also in allied industries such as in conservation projects, therapy riding, public services and entertainment. This MSc Equitation Science is a higher-level qualification that allows those with a good knowledge of equine science to further develop and focus their skills and to advance their knowledge of the science and practice underpinning equitation. During the course you will quickly appreciate the importance of a multidisciplinary approach to this complex and continually developing area. As a full-time student, you will study six taught modules covering key aspects of equitation science including equine behaviour, training, psychology, nutrition, management, human attributes and technological developments. You will also gain a thorough appreciation of ethical and sustainable equitation and examine contemporary issues within equitation science. Modules are continuously updated to incorporate recent research findings and reflect current thinking. This programme also offers you the opportunity to study a specific aspect of equitation practice in-depth as, having completed the taught modules, you will then conduct a three-month research project of your choice culminating in your dissertation. This programme offers you the opportunity to study a subject that truly inspires and engages you. You will advance and expand your skills in a supportive and personal environment. You will be taught by staff that are not only academically acclaimed and well connected on an international level, but also accessible and genuinely interested in helping you to develop your potential and achieve personal goals. Through the staff you will also have access to specialist equitation science equipment and international level research ideas and findings to enhance your education and future employability.

BSc (Hons) Applied Equitation Science

Level 6 • Part-time • Duchy College Stoke Climsland


This one year top up programme is designed for anyone who has an interest in and enthusiasm for horses and would like to get involved in discussions on training, problem solving and the horse-human relationship. It is ideal for individuals who wish to demonstrate their academic potential, ability to present a reasoned argument, enthusiasm for dissemination of scientific facts to the equine industry and who have a desire to support the improvement of horse welfare. Throughout the programme we encourage you to develop your individual abilities and test factual knowledge through a variety of assessment methods including posters, leaflets, micro teaches, demonstrations and some written work. Applicants should be interested in investigating all aspects of equitation and are motivated to effect change through the creation of new theories based on scientific research to support the horse within all aspects of horse-human interactions. This unique programme will enable you to develop existing knowledge through a mixture of taught and practical sessions which are integral to the programme. The knowledge gained through a variety of modules is applicable to horses and owners from leisure through to competitive industry. The programme includes a substantial honours project enabling you to carry out a detailed investigation in an area of your choice or from topics identified by the equitation science academic team with established research in biomechanics, behaviour and psychology and the horse-human relationship. Riding is offered at the on-site Equestrian Centre managed by an experienced equitation science postgraduate with many years of industry experience. In addition there are opportunities to continue the development of personal and professional skills through work-related learning in industry which is strongly encouraged and supported. There is the option of a short national study tour to enhance and consolidate your experience which requires an additional financial contribution from each student.
