Working with horses is more a way of life than it is a regular job.

But for those who are devoted to horses and have the motivation to work with them whatever the weather or time of day, working with horses provides its own unique rewards.

As a professional equestrian you will be able to choose from a wide variety of jobs within different types of organisations, and our courses at SRUC will give you an excellent overview of different career paths.

There are many employment opportunities within the equine and horse care industry, including becoming a riding instructor, groom, stud assistant, racing yard worker, or working in HM forces or the police force.
