Summary

This course is designed for those who have completed a BSc or MSc degree in a human musculoskeletal therapeutic programme such as physiotherapy, osteopathy, sports therapy or chiropractic. You’ll apply theory to practice in a supported setting while developing new expertise to advance your knowledge and career.

World-class facilities Using the extensive facilities at Hartpury you’ll study the assessment, evaluation and treatment techniques for injuries typical to amateur and professional horse riders. You’ll also progress your skills to apply therapeutic interventions and devise rehabilitation plans to facilitate optimum performance in the saddle. This will be underpinned by understanding equine movement and behaviour, always considering the welfare of the horse.

Outstanding expertise We’ll focus on your ability to integrate advanced clinical reasoning skills and reflective practice to musculoskeletal  assessment and treatment, as well as injury prevention. Working within your scope of professional practice, you’ll become an integral part of the multidisciplinary team supporting the horse and rider dyad.

Flexible study options With both full and part-time learning options, you could study alongside existing employment or other commitments. As a graduate, you'll be a specialist practitioner in horse rider musculoskeletal therapy and rehabilitation.
