The Hartpury experience Our Hartpury Certificate will enable you to complete work experience and develop your employability skills on and off campus ready to stand out to future employers and launch your dream career. You could also experience the equine industry through a range of field trips to Badminton and Blenheim Horse Trials, the Horse of the Year Show, the Natural History Museum, welfare charities and racing yards.** Students on our Grooms' Academy have worked for international showjumpers on the Sunshine tour. You’ll also hear from a variety of guest speakers and go to lecture demonstrations – often delivered by top international riders and trainers. Volunteer at big equine events Gain valuable experience by volunteering at our summer equine events. Our NAF Five Star International Hartpury Horse Trials, NAF Five Star Hartpury Festival of Dressage and NAF Five Star Hartpury Showjumping Spectacular attract top riders, including Olympic gold medalists Charlotte Dujardin and Carl Hester. Some of our students compete, while others help our events team behind-the-scenes and start making valuable connections. In 2022, we hosted the FEI Dressage and Eventing European Championships for Young Riders and Juniors – another fantastic opportunity for our students to gain first-hand experience of a large-scale equine event.

"I started riding when I was six and it quickly became something I loved. I’m so passionate about working with horses and really enjoyed my work experience at Tweenhills Stud. I’ve gained a fascinating insight into the world of horse racing. It’s opened my eyes to the stud industry and given me a wider choice when thinking about future careers. Hartpury has taught me so much about nutrition and performance, anatomy and physiology, and has really developed my confidence. I feel that what I’m studying now will give me a great foundation for a future in the equine world."

“We regularly have Hartpury students on work placement and find they’re really willing to work hard. It’s a fantastic opportunity for them to put their theoretical knowledge into practice in the real world and develop new skills. It’s great for us too – we have 280 young horses at Tweenhills Stud and Hartpury students are a great help with their day-to-day care and management.” Ivo Thomas, Assistant Manager at Tweenhills Stud
