About Reaseheath College

Reaseheath College in Cheshire is the training centre of choice for the serious equine student.

We work closely with employers to make sure our degrees give you the relevant, technical skills and knowledge you’ll need for a rewarding career. Our equine department is particularly successful in producing graduates who continue into scientific research, gain jobs with specialist equine companies or go into management.

A partner of the University of Chester, we are a recognised University Centre and our degrees are acknowledged as being among the best in the country. As a result, a very high proportion of Reaseheath graduates are in related employment within six months of completing their qualification.

Students on our diplomas and apprenticeships are also very successful, with many gaining jobs with professional producers, welfare organisations and leading retailers.

Our equestrian centre has all the facilities you would expect from a professional enterprise including a high standard indoor arena, two outdoor arenas, a purpose-built round pen for natural horsemanship and stabling for more than 60 horses.

We could say more… like our switched on staff have industry experience and we’ve great on-site accommodation and leisure facilities, but we’d rather you came and saw our campus for yourself. Find out more at www.reaseheath.ac.uk/horseandhound
