I have a level 3 technical diploma in Equine management, completed at Lackham college in Wiltshire.
Duties of Current Occupation
the main duties were to exercise, muck out, prepare for presentation, health check, fit tack and create hypothetical nutritonal feed plans.
Equine Work Experience
I have completed work experience on a professional event yard for around a year and a half, taking the horses to clear rounds, prepping them for training, being arena help for poles and jump etc. I have also completed work experience on a stud, hunt yard and an equestrian centre. Also, along with a local hacking centre, a local riding school. I spent 3 months at the local hacking centre, a year volunteering at the riding school, and the stud hunt and equestrian centre I spent a whole year at training and learning the individual skills needed for each environment.
I have worked with pregnant mares and yearlings, I am very organised and quick when it comes to turning out and mucking out. I have worked with all sorts of breeds from shires to thoroughbreds to Shetlands. I can work individually and as part of a team, with my leadership skills developing the more I go through the industry.
Type of Ride Work
I have ridden basic riding school horses and ponies, mainly of the cob types, so mainly lazy horses. Doing mainly flat work and the occasional jumping.
I have organised with my class a Christmas show jumping event for part of our qualification along with organising a training event for NSEA which is a college representative horse riding show against other colleges.
