Tell us about your career path so far
I have an Early Years Educator qualification, level 3 extended diploma in Horse Management which I worked towards after leaving school.
I then went on to University in Preston and now have a Bachelor’s Degree in Equine Science.
Whilst studying at Myerscough University, I worked on a number of different yards with a wide variety of horses from college horses to professional showjumpers.
After studying within the Equine sector for 5 years, I realised that I just wanted to keep horse riding as a hobby!
