Equine Business Management

My Distance Learning College


Even though the horse industry is fragmented, it is still a major employer of labor, though its identity and significance is often overlooked. This may be because of the small size and variety of the various individual units of which it is comprised.

The main objective of this course is to provide you with the necessary knowledge and tools to manage or own a profitable riding establishment.

Running an equine establishment is a business like any other, and knowledge and application bring success and the rewards we all need.

Topics in this course include:

  • Horses - a business and an industry
  • Premises
  • Staff
  • The office
  • The law
  • Finance and profit
  • Yard management
  • Farm and estate
  • Enterprises
  • Special events


On completion of your course, you will receive two qualifications:
