Date published: 19 June 2018

David Collins, a first year Honours Degree in Equine Management student, was the successful recipient of the Northern Ireland Horse Board bursary which was awarded as part of the Careers Day at Enniskillen Campus.

David Collins, from Enniskillen in Co Fermanagh receives a £500 bursary from Patrick Traynor and Sam Smyth representing the Northern Ireland Horse Board.

First year Honours Degree students, who choose the equitation module, were required to produce a report on the influence the training scales has on a horse’ way of going and its impact on soundness and longevity.

David who comes from Enniskillen in Co Fermanagh has a deep love for horses and enjoys working with them in hand and under saddle. David intends to work in the equine industry and has progressed onto the Honours Degree from the Level 3 Horse Management programme to further develop his career. 

David is extremely grateful to the Northern Ireland Horse Board for the opportunity to win the bursary and intends to use it to further his studies throughout his time at Enniskillen Campus.

CAFRE would also thank the Northern Ireland Horse Board for affording the students the opportunity to obtain a bursary to assist them with their studies.
