Level 2 Diploma in Horse Care “I really enjoyed the Level 2 course as I have always wanted to learn more about horses and the equine industry. Throughout the year of my programme I learnt lots of new subjects and improved both my knowledge and practical skills when caring for horses.

We had to complete yard duties as part of our course. These started early in the morning and gave me a good insight into the equine world. I chose to  complete my work placement at Leah Knight’s showjumping and livery yard in Lisburn. I really enjoyed my work placement. I gained experience grooming at shows and working with young horses which is something I would like to do in the future. The work  placement allowed me to experience the work load involved working with horses  and it has made me more determined to pursue a career in the equine industry. I am hoping to return to CAFRE to complete the Level 3 Extended Diploma in Horse Management.”
