Amy Murphy

Profession:
Racehorse Trainer

Amy studied Level 3 National Extended Diploma  Equine Management (Business) and is now the youngest racehorse trainer in the country which means she is responsible for all of the horses in the yard that she manages and run. Primarily she makes sure all the horses are fit, healthy and ready to perform at their best. There is a lot of behind the scenes work involved.

Amy's Hartpury Experience

"Hartpury was a fantastic grounding for my career as I learnt about all aspects of horse management, as well as health and anatomy, which now helps me to evaluate any injuries my horses may pick up and the best way to deal with them."

Developing Industry Connections

"I went straight into racing after my time at Hartpury, working for Tom Dascombe and latterly Luca Camani as assistant trainer. I also worked in Australia for champion trainer Gai Waterhouse. I’m very excited for the future with some fantastic horses to train in my first season!"
