Work Experience & Placements

Knowledge-based courses in aspects of riding, horse care and management...

Short, practical and knowledge-based courses in a variety of aspects of riding, horse care and management (including racing-specific), for those who wish to further develop their confidence, skills and knowledge.

We find there is a huge amount of diversity in the students who apply for work experience at HEROS Charity, from those with an equestrian background, who wish to gain experience at handling thoroughbreds before considering a career in racing, through to others who are pursuing veterinary or physiotherapy routes. In addition, students may wish to complete research or gather data for dissertations or final year projects.
