MSc Equine Behaviour, Performance and Training Graduate
After A Levels I worked for two years on an Australian Thoroughbred stud and cattle station which gave me enough self-confidence to apply for an equine subject on my return.
I have always known Sparsholt to be one of the leading land-based colleges – the facilities and resources are fantastic and I loved the third year top-up Equine BSc and MSc. I was able to use the Equine Centre for my undergraduate dissertation, which meant I could collect robust data.
I now work for the British Horse Society, which I am ecstatic about! Without going to Sparsholt, there is no way I would be in the job I am in now. It gave me self-belief, drastically improved my academic writing style and allowed me access to fantastic resources, which in turn has led to me being able to comprehensively research and write about a subject I am extremely passionate about. With the support of Sparsholt, I was able to complete one of the greatest achievements of my life and I now have my dream job to boot!
