Welcome to the Equestrian Centre

Welcome to the Derby College equestrian centre website, we are very excited about the developments to our riding centre and have grown considerably in what we can offer to the equestrian industry. As well as excellent training for full and part time Derby College horse care and horse management students, we also run competitions, elite training from industry professionals, short courses, riding lessons and adult riding camps.

We also have an increasing number of Apprentices who pursue a work-based qualification with us. Find out more about Apprenticeships.


A Very Busy Year

We had a very busy year, excellent student results both in the City & Guilds qualifications and outstanding success in their BHS industry exams. Once again the Derby College team won an Equine Inter-College Competition, this year at Brooksby College, a tremendous achievement, our 5th year of Inter-College success!. We have managed to get great use from our new XC Course and have had our first student and Open one day event.
