Students from the College of Agriculture, Food and Rural Enterprise (CAFRE), who are currently studying the Level 3 Extended Diploma in Horse Management, recently visited Laurelview Equestrian Centre, Co Antrim as research for their business management unit.

The students and staff were warmly welcomed on arrival, by the proprietors Robert and Linda Davis and chief instructor/manager, Laurel Faloona. The students were given a guided tour of the business and Laurel gave students an insight into running a successful establishment and the wide range of skills that are required. Robert discussed some other areas of their business which included Open Farm weekend, social farming and a range of rare breed farm animals.

Since our last visit, Laurelview have introduced some new facilities to allow for more turnout areas. The students were particularly interested in these developments. Laurel made suggestions of further extensions to the business and students were able to recognise the possibilities available with this type of enterprise. The impressive facilities and dedicated staff at Laurelview Equestrian Centre provide a top class service for their customers.

CAFRE Enniskillen Campus is holding our next open day on Saturday 21 April 2018 at 12 noon. If you are interested in a career in the equine industry, then come along to our open day to find out more about the equine courses on offer and see our campus facilities.
