A new booklet published by the British Equestrian Trade Association highlights the diverse range of opportunities available in the equestrian industry.
Careers in the Equestrian Industry features career overviews, qualifications and experience required, along with training available for a number of different roles including; sales, export, design, business and nutrition to name but a few.
“There is a general misapprehension that equestrian careers tend to consist of riding and grooming jobs or professions such as farriers, equine dentists or physiotherapists,” said BETA executive director Claire Williams. “In fact, nothing could be further from the truth, as the new guide quite clearly shows. I hope that colleges, universities and those offering careers advice will find the guide a valuable resource, providing plenty of food for thought and helping to set young people on the right path for future employment.”
