I started a bachelor's degree in Equine Management in September 2007 at the Royal Agricultural College, which has since been renamed the Royal Agricultural University. The course leader was Dr Andrew Hemmings and further information about the course can be found here.
It was a diverse course offering a mixture of equine science and management modules, covering everything from equine anatomy, behaviour and genetics to law, finance and marketing. I also had the opportunity to complete a 20 week work placement at Cheltenham racecourse.
For my dissertation in the final year, I investigating whether the orange boarding used around racing hurdles and fences was the most suitable colour given that horses are dichromatic. I obtained a first class degree with honours and was awarded a medal for outstanding academic achievement.
