Writtle University College at Chelmsford is set to unveil new equine facilities and resources at a free showcase event on Wednesday, March 14.

All of Writtle’s equine facilities have been brought onto one site at its Cow Watering Campus following a £2m investment to make it a central hub for equine teaching and research with the latest in scientific technologies.

A stud facility, extended outdoor menage, a second therapy barn, oval horsewalker, DIY stables and an indoor school have been added to facilities on campus, which include an equine water treadmill, solarium and indoor riding arenas.

Caroline Flanagan, who heads up the Higher Education Equine courses at Writtle, said: “Visitors will be able to gain first-hand experience of our equine courses and the cutting-edge, professional and dynamic equine work that happens here.”
