Students have eyes opened to equine career opportunities

Second year students on the BTEC Extended Diploma in Horse Management got the chance to visit the Berkshire College of Agriculture (BCA) yesterday (February 24th) for an Equine Careers Day.

They benefited from hearing from a host of industry speakers, including riding schools, the household cavalry, equine dentists, vets, racing industry experts, physiotherapists, photographers, retailers, vet nurses, mounted police, nutritionists, competition riders, saddleries, farriers, equine massage specialists and equestrian media.

The students also were able to observe lots of practical demonstrations and take part in Q and A sessions with each of the employers.

The day finished with an inspirational talk from Natasha Baker MBE, a Paralympic dressage rider who is a double Paralympic and five times European para-dressage champion.

Tom Hallam, Head of Equine (Further Education), said: “We would like to thank all of the BCA staff for organising such a great day for the students. It really opened their eyes to the wide breadth of careers available in the equine industry.”
