    So in september I am going to be doing Equine Sports Science. Thing is I just don't know where to go - Hartpury or Aber? Anyone else?

    I had always wanted to go to Hartpury, but over the past few months everyone has been telling me how amazing Aber is and how much they enjoyed the time there. So I'm very very confused! I'll also be taking my horse with me and there doesn't seem to be much livery available at Aber?

    Any suggestions?

    I know nothing about either university or course, but if you've always wanted to go to Hartpury and it has better horse facilities then it would make sense to go there. People tend to enjoy their time at most universities, and love to tell others about the amazing time they've had and it seems like it's only that that's making you change your mind, so unless you've been hearing negative stuff about Hartbury I'd go there

    Someone i know goes to Hartpury, it has amazing facilities for you and your horse. However, the lecturers aren't great.

    Yeah, I've heard the lecturers aren't great at Hartpury, and you very rarely get to use the facilities apparently. I also know a couple of people who have left Hartpury after a few weeks!

    Anyone at either?

    I didn't know such a course existed. Is there one for canine sports science?

    You can get canine therapy courses but these are all distance learning courses and are usually in combination with working full time.

    There are no specific canine courses for degree full time unfortunately But there is a Canine Behaviour and Training Degree at Bishop Burton which is part time [once a week].

    It's a shame as I'd definitely do it if it was full time.

    Hi, Just wondered if you had thought about Nottingham Trent University. They were the first to offer an Equine Speorts Science degree, their staff are very research active and heavily involved in the industry so know what they are talking about and the facilities and accomodation are really modern. They certainly have a really good reputation for equine education in the industry and the graduate employment stats from the uni are amongst the best in the country.
