What does Writtle University College mean to you?
If it wasn’t for Writtle College I would never have landed a place in this career, as Writtle introduced me to the British Racing School which then led me to the best job ever.

What did you particularly enjoy about your course?
I greatly enjoyed my time at Writtle College. I made some great friends and the lecturers were very friendly, helpful and encouraging. I especially liked that most of the time was spent carrying out practical work, with a lot of hands-on experience with a wide variety of horses.

My Current Job
I work for Nigel Twiston-Davies where I get the chance to look after top quality racehorses and attend all the big racing festivals. I am very lucky to be looking after some legends in the racing world which include Pigeon Island (Cheltenham Festival winner) and Blaklion (Cheltenham winner and future star).
