This nationally recognised course may be studied part-time or full-time to suit your lifestyle. Our equine-industry expert teachers will ensure you have the most current knowledge and skills to make sure you are job ready when you graduate.

Some of the skills you may learn include:

The sector involves the care of mares, mating, foaling, raising young horses and preparing them for sales. The horse breeding industry is spread throughout Australia and makes a huge contribution to the regional economy. It requires competent and skilled workers, including:

  • Stablehands
  • Horse handlers
  • Breeding attendants
  • Sales personnel

The annual breeding cycle of the industry means workers may have the opportunity to expand their skills through opportunities in the northern hemisphere during the Australian off-season.
