Sport Horse Stable Attendant (Level 4)

The Sporthorse Stable Attendant involves little riding, but is intended for those students wishing to be qualified for sole-charge positions caring for and supervising training programmes for competetive horses. It is an in-depth course in both practical and theoretical knowledge.

Students graduating from this course will be well prepared for working as a groom in the New Zealand or overseas Sporthorse Industry. Once practical experience has been gained, holders of this qualification will be well-suited to positions as yard managers.

Former students at Kyrewood who gained the Sporthorse qualification have found interesting positions in all parts of the world. The riding skills acquired during their training have opened doors to schooling young horses, and to competitive riding in Australia, New Zealand, the United Kingdom and America.
