Equestrian Stable Management – Junior Program
Open up international career perspectives in the field of equestrian stable management
The job market for the equestrian sport and business includes many different professions and jobs, but it is highly competitive. At the same time, there is a great demand for, but a huge lack of well-educated managers in high-class sport stables.
Therefore, this program is aimed at young professionals with vocational training or a degree, who want to expand their competences and open up international career perspectives in equestrian stable management. Thanks to the unique combination between management and equestrian knowledge and skills, it opens up career perspectives to become an international stable manager at a high-class sport stable.
Sound business and administrative knowledge and methods taught by the renowned RWTH are combined with equestrian know-how provided by experts from the CHIO network. On top of this, the participants gain valuable practical experience and an outstanding network through a 6-month internship at one of the high-class partner stables of the program. After one year, the participants achieve the recognized “Junior Equestrian Stable Manager” certificate.
“When I am in the ring, it is down to me and my horse alone. But there is so much work that goes on behind the scenes. The entire team plays a totally decisive role in every victory I achieve.”

High level combination between equine and business management
The program deepens the knowledge gained during your vocational training with four intense modules on the topics of basic stable management and horse performance. Armed with your newly acquired knowledge and skills, you embark on a 6-month internship at a high-class sport stable. This allows you to put your theoretical knowledge into practice and make a real impact. At the same time, you can take advantage of your time at the stable to network, make observations and gather input for your project work. This will lay the foundation for a successful project presentation at the end of your one-year course.
