Course summary

**Why you should study Equine at WUC…**- You will be able to choose from one of three distinctive specialisms. - We have invested significantly in our equine facilities to ensure you get hands-on access to specialist resources.- Our facilities include two large indoor riding arenas, floodlit outdoor ménage, stud resources, bespoke therapy barns, stables, water treadmill, solarium, round pen and oval horsewalker. - You will study towards a professional qualification on the Equine Sports Therapy and Rehabilitation degree, awarded by Equineenergy.- You will benefit from lectures, practical sessions and interactive workshops to enhance your learning.- We have a wide range of scientific and technological equipment that is used to enhance taught sessions, as well as enabling you to conduct original research projects that are relevant to the industry.- You will benefit from our work with the likes of International Association of Animal Behaviour Consultants (IAABC) to bring you specialist tuition and support during your degree. - Our research findings have been presented at conferences such as the International Society of Equitation Science, the Universities Federation for Animal Welfare and the British Society of Animal Science.- Our course team includes experienced practitioners in both McTimoney Animal Therapy, Veterinary Physiotherapy and Equitation Coaching.- You will have the opportunity to work with World Horse Welfare, assisting in the rehabilitation and training of their rescue horses in preparation for re-homing.The BSc (Hons) Equine Sports Therapy & Rehabilitation award is designed to provide students with an exceptional knowledge of many aspects of sport horse performance. Including detailed levels of anatomy & physiology, and factors affecting performance such as saddlery, farriery and biomechanics.Ideally, this degree-level award would be supplemented by massage skills acquired to a professional level, allowing the student to practice as a massage therapist. Whilst not compulsory, we strongly encourage students to undertake Equinenergy's EQ100 Equine Bodyworker course at Writtle, in the summer between their second and third year. This course takes the basic principles of massage already delivered to our students in practical sessions to a professional level of competence via an intense week of delivery, followed by an externship. The latter is supported at Writtle by a module within the third year; and students have the added benefit of staff expertise on hand throughout to help if required.The combination of both a degree-level award and a professional massage qualification will ensure that you can practice as an Equine Sports Therapist following graduation.
