Jockey Hall Stud Bursary awarded to successful Banbridge student

Date published: 28 March 2018

Emmee Matheson, a second year Level 3 Extended Diploma in Horse Management student at CAFRE Enniskillen Campus has been awarded the Jockey Hall Stud Bursary of £1,000.

Mr Leo Powell, Editor of the Irish Field, presenting the Bursary on behalf of Jockey Hall Stud to Emmee Matheson at the recent CAFRE Enniskillen Careers Event.

The bursary, which was presented during the annual equine careers event at Enniskillen Campus, was awarded to Emmee for achieving the top mark in the ‘Anatomy and Physiology’ module. This challenging module covers a range of topics including the organ systems of the horse, equine reproduction and adaptations to body structures and systems.

Emmee from Banbridge, Co Down has almost completed the BTEC Level 3 Extended Diploma in Horse Management and is looking forward to progressing onto further study in the future. Emmee is currently interested in pursuing a degree in Law in September 2019 which she can hopefully combine with her equine interests in future. Before commencing the degree in Law she is intending to take a gap year to further her equine interests.

CAFRE Enniskillen Campus is pleased to have this ongoing partnership with Jockey Hall Stud and is delighted to be able to offer such a valued award to students undertaking Further Education courses at CAFRE Enniskillen Campus.

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 excellent campus facilities or alternatively check out the CAFRE website.
