This February, Year Two Equine Performance and Business Management students enjoyed a field trip to Keysoe International Equestrian Centre in Bedford.
The centre features an indoor arena, international-size outdoor arena, cross country course and barn style competition stables.
Lecturer Susan Mooney said: "Thank you to the Keysoe team for describing the steps involved in running a successful equestrian enterprise. Our students learnt a lot and enjoyed a tour of the amazing facilities."
The students hope to return to Keysoe during the next academic year to view the progress made by therapy ponies, Flame and Trinity, and see the next steps in exciting development plans.
