Writtle University College unveiled its new equine facilities at an open day earlier this week.
Around 300 visitors were given a taster of the range of equine work being carried out at the site in Chelmsford, north Essex.
The event comes in the wake of a £2million investment, which has brought all horse-related activities together at its Cow Watering Campus, which is now a central hub for equine teaching and research.
New additions, such as a stud facility and oval horsewalker, have been added to the facilities already on the campus, which include an equine water treadmill, solarium and indoor riding arenas
Caroline Flanagan, who heads up the equine and veterinary physiotherapy courses, said: “At Writtle we strive to achieve a graduate who can put science into practice. Our facilities are vital to support this very applied approach to education.”
