An award-winning college in Devon is seeking horses to live on its rural campus to help with the training of equine students.

Bicton College’s equine yard staff are hard at work preparing for the new groups of students and horses, and are looking for all-rounders or ex-competition horses to join the fantastic working livery.

Curriculum Lead for Equine, Carol Knight, said: “We would like to take this opportunity to thank all our working livery horse owners for their continued support this year in sending us their horses.  The horses and students together progress under the guidance of our experienced equine teaching team, and the results for both horse and student are remarkable.”

The equine department is looking for horses to join their yard, with prices starting from only £16 plus VAT per week. This includes shoes, feed, exercise, clipping, trimming, grooming and tack cleaning.

Equine Team Lead Alex Robinson-Barr added: “The horses are managed on a horse needs-led basis regarding training, feed, and appropriate stabling and management. Young or green horses are educated and older horses maintained with all being respected for what they need and can offer.”

If you would like your horse to benefit from the individual management available and facilities at Bicton College, which includes year round turn out, indoor and outdoor arenas, a walker, solarium and a set of British show-jumping jumps along with first class care, please ring for an application pack.  All types of horse are considered on application and owners are welcome to hack and compete with their horse while they are in working livery at the College.

Bicton College’s Principal, Phil Le Grice, said: “The working livery horses are a fantastic resource for the students, giving them the opportunity to learn a great deal from looking after the horses in such a great environment.”
