Award-winning Duchy College is seeking horses to live at the College’s rural Stoke Climsland campus to take part in the training of its students. The equine yard staff are hard at work preparing for the new groups of students and horses, and are looking for experienced all-rounders or ex-competition horses to join the five star working livery.
Curriculum Lead for Equine, Carol Knight, said: “We would like to take this opportunity to thank all our working livery horse owners for their continued support this year in sending us their horses. The horses and students together progress under the guidance of our experienced equine teaching team and, as was seen at our Open Days in June, they thrive in the environment we create for them.”
The equine department are looking for 12 horses to join their yard and prices start from only £16+ VAT per week.
Equine and Animal Centre Manager, Jo Challacombe, added: “The horses are managed on a horse needs led basis regarding training, feed, appropriate stabling and management. Young or green horses are educated and older horses maintained with all being respected for what they need and can offer.”
If you would like your horse to benefit from the individual management available and facilities at Duchy College, which includes a solarium, horse-walker, 3 riding surfaces (2 indoors) and first class care, please ring 01579 372203 for an application pack. All types of horse are considered on application and owners are welcome to hack and compete with their horse while they are in working livery at the College.
Principal of Duchy College Andrew Counsell, said: “The working livery horses are a fantastic resource for the students, giving them the opportunity to learn a great deal from looking after the horses in such a great environment.”
