Course Summary

This course will provide you with the opportunity to further explore and develop knowledge of applied subjects specifically focused on maintaining, enhancing and restoring performance within equestrian athletes. The content of core modules which include Therapy and Rehabilitation of the Equine Athlete and Applied Equine Exercise Physiology will enable successful graduates to appreciate and evaluate the interaction between the physiology of exercise and the principles behind rehabilitating the sports horse. Overall the PG Cert aims to increase your knowledge and understanding of how Equine Science can maximize performance, increase career length, and aid in selection of the performance horse. On successful completion of the PG Certificate, graduates have the opportunity to progress to the PG Diploma Equine Science and then on to MSc Equine Science or directly on to the MSc Equine Science. The PG Certificate, therefore, acts as an ideal transition to postgraduate study for those who may not be in a position to go straight on to a full Masters programme.
