I have also had loan horses all throughout my life whom also varied in personalities, breeds, heights, ages etc. Upon leaving school in 2014 I went on to complete my Level 3 extended diploma in equine care and management at Otley college, achieving the highest grade of a Distinction in both theory and practical including nutrition, biology, teaching, turnout and ridden work. During the time at college I also had a work placement at Pete Tye eventing where I completed 500 hours in the school year, my work here included regular day to day running, grooming at competitions, working with stud horses and youngsters, and handling all variety aged fit competition horses.
