Apprenticeships offered for 16-18 years.

Programmes are run through Haddon Training.

We are an Established Employer for Haddon Training and offer training in the industry for EQUINE GROOM LEVEL 2 and 3.

Level 2 is most suited to those with some experience working with horses focusing on giving you a strong foundation in horse care to kick-start your equine career.

Level 3 is for those with more experience of working with horses in a busy environment and focuses on more advanced horse care skills and knowledge and the ability to lead and organise a team.

Candidates must be keen and have some knowledge of horses.
You will be paid according to the Apprentice wage but will be charged for accommodation.
You will have the opportunity to compete and ride a variety of horses.

WE offer Foreign Students Work Experience as part of their School, University Courses.

These courses are suitable for anyone who wishes to study horse care in the work place rather than attending a full time college course.

You will study a range of topics i.e. horse health, stable management, grassland management, nutrition, health and safety, transportation and effective working relationships, plus an optional unit i.e. exercising and riding, care of the performance horse etc.

These courses are especially good as they are practically based training in the industry. There are no exams at the end of the programme, it is all achieved by assessments and building a portfolio on evidence.

The qualification is built up on Units. Each Unit has been assigned a number of credits to achieve an Award, Certificate or Diploma.

The programme allows you to work at your own pace and courses are full or part-time to suit.

Courses are offered to anyone 14 - 16 years, 16 - 18 years, 19+

We offer excellent practical and theoretical equestrian training with our 12 month practical course which is a practical 'hands-on' course giving invaluable industry experience

The course is available to those apprentices who are willing to work in exchange for tuition. We regard these apprentices as very special people, as they spend at least 12 months as part of the Hyperion Riding Team.

Many of our apprentices are also able to achieve Stage 3, but this may depend on their previous experience before coming to train with us.

All apprentices also train towards their Preliminary Teaching Test and are able to take this too providing they are old enough during their time with us.
