Animal Jobs Direct

'We offer several equine courses, some studied online and one that is practical based. Working with horses is a popular animal career and there are many employers in this sector. Most horses in the UK are owned by individuals. Their owners and riders spend over 950 million pounds per year on them. As a result there are a large number of employment possibilities across the equine sector. Whilst the largest is racing, there are also many animal charities that specifically care for abandoned, unwanted and abused horses. '
