Northern Ireland Horse Board award a Bursary to a CAFRE Equine Student

Catherine Crowley, Equine Lecturer, Enniskillen Campus

Orla Stitt, a first year Honours Degree in Equine Management student from Crumlin Co. Antrim, was the successful recipient of the Northern Ireland Horse Board bursary which was awarded as part of the Careers Day at Enniskillen Campus.

First year Honours Degree students, who undertook the equitation module, were required to produce a report on the influence the training scales have on a horse’ way of going and its impact on soundness and longevity.

Orla has a deep love for horses and enjoys working with them in hand and under saddle.  Orla intends to work in the equine industry and is undertaking the Honours Degree to further develop her career.

Oral is extremely grateful to the Northern Ireland Horse Board for the opportunity to win the bursary and intends to use it to further her studies throughout her time at the campus.

CAFRE would also thank the Northern Ireland Horse Board for affording the students the opportunity to obtain a bursary to assist them with their studies.

To find out more about the equine courses offered at Enniskillen Campus, including the BSc (Hons) in Equine Management programme, come along to our careers advice evening on Thursday 24th August at 7pm.  Alternatively check out our courses on www.cafre.ac.uk or follow us on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/discovercafre.
