Summary

This programme provides you with the opportunity to develop and further explore a range of applied subjects within the field of equestrian science, building on your prior learning and experience within the industry. The programme contains core modules within a broad range of subjects; each with a strong applied context enabling you to appreciate and evaluate the interaction of science within practice. Students have opportunities to use different types of technology, for example gait analysis and electromyography equipment that they can use for data measurement and collection depending on the modules selected or the line of investigation taken in their thesis. Your choice of modules will help you to increase your knowledge and understanding of how equine science can maximise performance, extend career length or aid in selection of the performance horse, with a core goal of optimising the horse’s welfare.
