Farming background

I finished my first Diploma at the NRC on the 12-weeks Stable Staff Foundation Course During this initial period of training I undertook such activities carrying out yard duties, looking after racehorses, riding out, attending lectures and studying for their technical certificate and functional skills qualifications. I achieved my Diploma Level 1 in Work based 12 weeks Apprenticeship Level 1 Diploma in Racehorse Care Functional Skills Qualifications and a First Aid Certificate. I originally applied for the National Stud Apprenticeship in 2010. Due to accommodation restrictions at the Stud only over 16 year olds were accepted. I then chose to go to the NRC to get some experience with racehorses. I reapplied to the National Stud Apprenticeship for 2011. I have always followed horse racing and the Apprenticeship is an excellent introduction into working with thoroughbreds. at the National Stud I learnt a lot; this includes being a good team member and developing the ability to work with others, also during the residential course I have attended lectures on getting mares in foal, transport of horses, basic anatomy and the theory behind practical skills. I have also learnt to handle a variety of different horses. These include; mares and foals, mares in foal, yearlings, spellers and prepping foals for the Sales. I then went on to gain my BTEC/Diploma level 2 to gain more experience and qualifications also to refresh my riding skills. I also took two weeks work experience in Belgium working fit competition horses.
