Level 7 • Part-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.
