Local to me is a college which offers a two year equine course. A friends daughter is intending to go. Itâ€™s a mix of â€˜animal managementâ€™ and basic riding. While tacking up at the weekend, I asked mum what her daughter intended to do after being at college and she had no idea. I know so many young girls who have attended this course over the years and they still end up as a groom and have to work their way up. Unless they are seriously talented at riding and schooling. In fact many left the course and found they couldnâ€™t even find a decent job. Just mucking out positions. I wondered how many of us on here work within the equine industry but didnâ€™t attend a course. Is it necessary? I told the girl sheâ€™d be better off getting a â€˜properâ€™ job and then have the money to run her own horse. ðŸ˜€.
