More about Harry
Why did you choose to study your course at Brackenhurst?
I wanted to study Equine Management at Brackenhurst because of my passion for horses from a young age.
Tell us more about your course. What do you enjoy studying the most?
My favourite part of the course is the theory as I like expanding my knowledge, although I do also enjoy the practical side of the course.
What do you think about the facilities available on your course and what do you use the most?
The facilities at Brackenhurst are great, there is stabling catered to horses needs, great turn out, hacking, walker and two large arenas. We use the indoor arena the most as it keeps the horses and riders out of the elements.
What do you think about Brackenhurst Campus? What do you get up to in your spare time?
I find Brackenhurst Campus to be calm with a good community of students. In my spare time while on campus I attend Young Farmers (group) and spend time with the rest of students on campus whether it be agricultural students or students on the equine course.
Have you had any support from other departments? How was your experience accessing these/ was the service helpful?
There are many departments on the campus that are there to help students, such as employability, finance or student support. I find them all to be very helpful.
What is your top tip for someone considering studying at Brackenhurst Campus?
My top tip for someone considering studying at Brackenhurst is, if you want to be in the countryside, be involved in a good community, get an education a more non-traditional way with lots of practical work, this may be the right campus for you.
Have you been involved in any placements, work experience or volunteering as part of your course? If so, what did you do and what did you achieve?
As part of my course, we must complete a certain amount of placement hours at the stables, we turn horses in and out, feed them, groom them, skip out and set fair.
Why would you recommend your course to someone considering studying it?
I would recommend my course to someone that enjoys learning, working and riding horses. This course isn’t only for people that want a career in the equine industry but also people that want to get to a degree level or A level equivalent and then having the option to many university courses and jobs.
What are your plans for after the course and how do you feel your course has/ will help you to achieve that goal?
Since a very young age my interest has been in jumping horses. I would love to breed jumping horses and own a stud farm. After this course I will go on to do a degree and masters in either business or marketing. From there I aspire to own multiple businesses and breed my own horses.
