This Unit of Study will give students wishing to work in the equine industries a strong scientifically based grounding in this field. The emphasis is on developing the students' basic knowledge of equine management, including day to day care, nutrition, reproduction, behaviour and training, disease and exercise physiology. Students will be introduced to the structure of equine industries in Australia, and basic horse handling and husbandry skills will be taught.
