Is it the right ca­reer for me?

Your Horse (UK) - - Ask The Experts -

QI’m con­sid­er­ing tak­ing pro­fes­sional qual­i­fi­ca­tions so I can work with horses but I’m un­cer­tain whether I’d en­joy it. What are the ben­e­fits of work­ing with horses? Su­san Cane, Suffolk

AIt might sound ob­vi­ous but you need to have a real love of horses if you want to fol­low a ca­reer in equestrianism. Work­ing in the in­dus­try re­quires hard work and de­ter­mi­na­tion but the re­sult when you build up a part­ner­ship with a horse or client will be well worth all of the efff­fort that you put in. Our pro­fes­sional ca­reer path­ways give a com­pre­hen­sive ap­proach to de­vel­op­ing your ca­reer in the equine in­dus­try. You don’t just have to ride, there are fi­five be­spoke ca­reer paths you can take, de­pend­ing on your long-term goal. This in­cludes many ca­reer op­tions – be­com­ing a suc­cess­ful groom, sta­ble man­ager, as well as dif­fer­ent coach­ing and teach­ing op­tions. When you are think­ing about your long-term goals, make sure you do your re­search. Ask your­self: is this my pas­sion, can I see my­self do­ing this role ev­ery day? But also re­mem­ber that your learn­ing should be a life­long jour­ney.

If you’re go­ing to work with horses, you have to love them!
