Equestrian Stable Management – Senior Program
Bring your equestrian stable management competences to the next level
You are an experienced horse groom, stable manager, or professional rider? And you want to professionalize and expand your knowledge and competences in the management of an international equestrian sport stable?
This program addresses both the lack of well-educated managers at high-class sports stables and gives experienced employees/workers in equestrian sports the opportunity to reach higher positions with more responsibility and less physical work.
Due to the high workload of employees in equestrian stables, the online course system allows for completion on a part-time/extra-occupational basis. Moreover, employees of equestrian businesses, such as grooms or riders, usually have sound equine knowledge. Accordingly, participants of the Senior Program acquire advanced business and administrative knowledge taught by the renowned RWTH, combined with further equestrian know-how supplied by experts from the CHIO network. In addition, on-site events with international experts from the equestrian sport business provide insights into practical cases and enable networking with potential employers.
This program is designed to motivate participants to think outside the box, take on leadership roles, integrate an efficient working structure and develop the business in a strategic and forward-looking way. After one year of study, the participants will be awarded with the recognized “Senior 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.”
– Henrik von Eckermann, patron of the program
