Kayleigh Nestor studied a QQI Level 5 in Horsemanship at DCFE and graduated in May 2020. After successfully completing her course, Kayleigh progressed to the QQI Level 6 in Equine Business at Dunboyne College of Further Education.
"I applied for the Equine Business course in 2019. I had a baby, so I was out of action with horses for a good three years prior to my application. I applied thinking it would be a good, 'refresher,' course to get my confidence back, but I gained so much more than bargained for. The tutors are excellent! They really keep you thinking and questioning things like the science behind why and how the equine systems react the way they do, and how if one system is off, it affects all the others. They break down the information so that it is practical and understandable. Even if you do not feel you're very, 'academic,' I would highly recommend this course. You are guaranteed to learn something new! And your horses may start to go better!
Thanks for your contribution Kayleigh. We wish you continued success with your Level 6 and in your career.
