At North Farm Stud we aim to provide quality equestrian training, riding instruction and livery. Our qualified staff, quality horses and superb facilities combine to provide a perfect equestrian learning experience. We provide support for learning to children, adults, students and equestrian professionals.
HEROS Education, based and supported by North Farm Stud, hopes that by using some of our horses who are re-training and based here will support youngsters to learn, we plan to help them acquire jobs in the racing industry or other equine disciplines in the local area. HEROS with North Farm Stud now teach a range of Courses, Traineeships and Apprenticeships as well as functional skills in Maths and English.
HEROS is recognised by the British Horseracing Authority (BHA) as an approved route to racing. North Farm Stud offer work experience for school leavers, job centre placements and other personal learning programmes. West Oxfordshire Council, West Berkshire and Wiltshire Councils have approved HEROS as a provider of flexible learning. We are a job centre placement for young people not in education, employment or training (NEET) and we mainly offer a range of `Alternative to School’ placements for 12-16yr-olds. In 2018 and 2019 we were recently shortlisted by the South and Vale Business Awards team for a Social Responsibility award.
