Horse Racing Ireland Bursary for CAFRE Equine Student

Date published: 16 October 2017

Students at CAFRE Enniskillen Campus were recently awarded bursaries from various equine businesses and organisations. These organisations assist students directly by providing up to £1,000 and the students are chosen by submitting an assignment, a CV or attending an interview.

One of the bursaries was provided by Horse Racing Ireland (HRI) and was awarded to Melanie Reid from Howth, Co Dublin. Melanie is now a final year student undertaking the Honours Degree in Equine Management. Students were required to submit an assignment as part of their second year “Event Management” module. The aim of this assignment was to produce a video to market an upcoming Horse Racing Ireland event with the aim of encouraging more students to get involved in the Irish racing industry. Students were also required to produce a concise document detailing a marketing strategy for the event.

The management, staff and students at Enniskillen are extremely appreciative of this excellent support from Horse Racing Ireland.
