We asked Bethan our Level 1, 2 and 14+ Programme Manager for Equine Management some questions on her role here at Plumpton College.
How did you get into your role at Plumpton College?
Having worked at and then managed a Riding School in Central London for 5years I wanted to continue to promote equine education and management and inspire a younger generation to become involved in the industry.
I joined Plumpton in 2017 as an Equine and Animal Lecturer, and then progressed to Equine Programme Manager which is my current role.
What’s the favourite part about your job?
My favourite part of my job is helping the students to develop their own coaching and equitation skills;
"I love seeing the students grow in confidence and ability, and achieving things that they once thought impossible."
What do you love most about Plumpton College?
I believe a job is what you make of it, but people make a place.
"I am fortunate to work with some of the most dedicated, supportive and knowledgeable people and I feel inspired by them every day."
If you had your time again, would you do anything differently?
Whilst I love my job, it is not what I thought I would be doing if you had asked me 10 years ago. I don’t regret any of my decisions, but if I could do it again I would be an equine veterinary nurse.
What advice would you give to students thinking about studying at Plumpton College?
"Take pride in what you do. Our horses and yard are a reflection of you. Try to get involved with every opportunity and give it your best effort."
