Where Will the Courses Take Place?

The courses takes place at the Westfalien Federal School of Riding and Driving in Munster, Germany. Located in the heart of Germany, close to the airport and with an excellent infrastructure on site, we are using their lecture rooms, horses and stables. 

Consequently, the workshops and practical units will always be held in suitable surroundings, be it in a stable, at a horse show or at the university.

Your Benefits

A Job, or working with horses, overseas or in an international stable can mean good money and interesting tasks. But working in a stable, maybe with a boss, who is not an experienced horse person or employees, that have never seen a horse before, also means new challenges. Relevant experience and efficient further education is the best preparation. Documentation of qualifications is important, especially when you want to work overseas. 

As the courses are offered as two-week crash courses, working people, too, get the chance to use this continuing education programme. After an intensive "equestrian English" language course and provided with equestrian terminology and phrases, participants having passed their exams are well-equipped to accept a job abroad or to provide excellent service for English-speaking customers.
