Parent’s Day at CAFRE Enniskillen Campus

 Parents Day 14

First year Level 3 Extended Diploma in Horse Management students with painted horse showing what students have learnt during their Animal Biology class at the recent parents’ day at Enniskillen Campus.

Parents and guardians of the Level 3 Year 1 Extended Diploma in Horse Management students were recently invited to Enniskillen Campus for an update on the progression of individual students.  This was the second parent’s event that Campus staff had arranged for first year students, the previous one being for the Level 2 Diploma in Horse Care students.

A number of the Level 3 students gave a presentation outlining the range of modules that they are covering in the course.  Emily Webb, one of the Level 3 students then brought parents to the yard to see the remainder of the Level 3 students at work; grooming, tacking up, bandaging, plaiting, tack cleaning.  Three students had been concentrating on the anatomy of the horse and had assisted Enniskillen Campus lecturer, Laura Smith, in painting the muscles onto one of the horses in the Equitation Yard.  Some of the riding module students also gave a short demonstration of a lesson, using polework as a stepping stone between flatwork and jumping.

 The day finished up with a well needed cup of tea to warm everyone up and an opportunity for an update on each student on an individual basis with their Year Manager, Shelley Stuart and their Programme Manager, Sharon McLaren.  The day was thoroughly enjoyed by all present.

 If you would like to find out more about the Level 3 Extended Diploma in Horse Management course or other equine courses available at Enniskillen Campus come along to our open day on Saturday 22nd March at 12 noon or alternatively check out our website.
