More about Lizzie
“I chose this course because it would help me learn more about the science behind the horse, which I could then apply to the care and performance of my own horses. It would also help me develop the skills needed to be potentially employed within the equine industry. Brackenhurst offered fantastic facilities and a great reputation also, making it an easy decision!
“The Equine Sports Science course covers a vast range of areas within the field of equine science. It provides a great overview within its modules on matters such as husbandry, first aid, injury, rehabilitation, anatomy and physiology, welfare and the equine sports industry both on a national and global scale. It offers both practical and classroom learning.
“It’s a fantastic course which covers a wide variety of topics which can then be applied on a practical level. I have always had horses of my own but I have learnt such a lot from my time on this course. I enjoy the competition and performance related modules such as Equine and Human Sports Science, Sports Injury, Optimising Performance and the National and Global Sports Industry modules.
“All the tutors offer a wealth of knowledgeable and are very friendly. They are always willing to share their expertise and help, often going to extra effort for your benefit.
“I have lived at home and travelled in for all of my time here at Brackenhurst so I settled in reasonably quickly and although I was living off campus I found I made friends quickly. Brackenhurst Campus offers a relaxed and friendly atmosphere, making it easy to fit in and manage your studies.
“I am still unsure of what I want to do when I graduate, but doing this course has definitely opened up a lot of opportunities for me and made me realise just how many options are available. The skills I have learnt make me feel a lot more confident about applying for jobs.”
