Course Description

Open your career options in the equine industry by learning the skills to work confidently in an agistment centre, stud or racing stable environment in either the Thoroughbred or Harness industries. The Gippsland Harness Training Stables have school horses to suit all levels. Learn the main areas of stable operations and general horse husbandry working with our school horses daily. You will gain practical experience in transporting and attending horses at race meetings and trials, providing first aid, feeding programs for performance horses, leading small teams, learning the rules of racing and general daily stable operation duties using our school horses and training stables and equipment.

The course is offered as a campus based program at the stables and a Traineeship that can be provided in your workplace. To complete the Traineeship program you will need to be employed in the racing industry and have a  contract with an Apprenticeship Network Provider with CCG nominated as the Registered Training Organisation for providing the training.
