Equine degree students present research to industry

Equine degree students present research to industry

The case study programme was successfully embedded into the BA (Hons) Equine Business Management and BSc (Hons) Equine Management (top-up) programmes, enabling students to have the opportunity to take part within a real life project.

Ryan Aspinall, Jess Davis and Hélène Sourdois were invited to present their findings to industry professionals, specific to both the UK and the global equine industry. These students were supported by Nicole Connor and Samantha Charlton who also contributed to the project but were not able to attend the presentation. The students proposed that utilising only one Passport Issuing Organization (PIO) would provide a centralised system with a standardised passport format. Current PIOs would move to issuing Registration Certificates which would allow for membership bodies to continue making a profit.

The Equine Sector Council had a meeting with Defra and the Minister, Lord De Mauley, Parliamentary Under-Secretary. This meeting featured a presentation from Jan Rogers (BEF) including a summary of the findings from the Hartpury students as to how to take the industry forward, the key theme in Jan Rogers’ presentation structured around the need for only one PIO and the creation of an information hub, as suggested by the students.
