This course is suitable for anyone wishing to work within the area of equine rehabilitation and therapy. Moulton College is set across a 485 hectare estate in rural Northamptonshire, with its degree courses validated by the University of Northampton. Our on-site facilities include an equine therapy centre; equine yard; and veterinary practice, where students can gain hands-on commercial experience alongside their studies. We also have links with a wide range of equine organisations, such as the British Horse Society; the National Association of Veterinary Physiotherapists; Riding for the Disabled; the Royal Veterinary College; and the Society of Equine Behavioural Consultants. Students at Moulton College have full use of the resources at the University of Northampton and can enjoy access to the Student Union bars and restaurants, to university sports teams and leisure societies.
Year 1 of the course provides the underpinning knowledge for working with horses in a therapy based industry. Modules include Anatomy and Physiology; Horse Health and Welfare; and Introduction to Equine Therapies. Students will also gain hands-on experience working with horses on the College’s Equine Yard in the Practical Horsemanship module. Year 2 and 3 students then study more specialised modules based around equine therapies, including Equine Exercise Physiology; Equine Behaviour; and Practical Rehabilitation Skills. Year 3 also allows students to undertake a large research project on their own area of interest.
