Whether you manage a small private stable or an extensive horse training and racing enterprise, our experienced consultants and trainers can provide professional equine training to support and grow your business.

Why Skillinvest?

For young people wanting a career in the equine and horse training industry, working as a stable-hand, track-rider, jockey or trainer, we actively encourage them to start their training and skills development while at secondary school. Many students who transition successfully into full-time horse training apprenticeships started at school through VET in Schools, a structured work placement, school-based apprenticeship, or a combination of all three.

Skillinvest is also a Registered Training Organisation (RTO Code 4192) and delivers a range of nationally recognised equine certificates and qualifications. Select from established courses or we can tailor a training package or course to suit your specific business needs. Our trainers can even deliver training at your workplace.

Services we offer:

  • Recruit and manage someone for your business
  • Horse training to develop your existing staff
  • Equine Traineeships

Equine racing employer

“Scott Brunton Racing Stables has benefited greatly from the relationship with Skillinvest. We have two employees currently enrolled in the Certificate III in Racing (Advanced Stable hand) and are looking at enrolling more employees this year. Both our employees and myself are very satisfied with the delivery of the course and the extra knowledge it has provided.”
