Sarah Manders

Level 3 Extended Diploma in Horse Management “I always had a passion for horses and I decided to go to Enniskillen Campus to prepare for my career in the equine industry. I acquired knowledge about many areas of the equine industry and learnt new practical skills. I also competed regularly for the Campus at showjumping events on the Campus’ horses. As part of the Level 3 programme, I undertook my work placement in Edward Doyle’s International Showjumping yard in Punchestown in Co. Kildare which I really enjoyed. Since graduating with my Level 3, I am now working full-time in Edward Doyle’s yard as one of their Showjumping grooms and have also recently assumed an additional role of Manager of one of the yards. I am thoroughly enjoying all aspects of my work and have met so many people from across the world. I recently travelled to Belgium to groom at the Zangershiede Z-Tour. This was an amazing experience for me. I may also have the opportunity to travel to Italy and Austria this year. My time spent at Enniskillen was really enjoyable and I gained so much valuable knowledge and skills in horse management and care. Enniskillen Campus has certainly helped me to secure a career in the equine industry.”
