If you have a passion for horses, an equine career is often the ultimate goal - after all, who wouldn't want to work in a rewarding industry rich with extraordinary experiences? However, with so many varied roles available it can be difficult to choose the right career path to suit your aspirations.

Whatever career you decide to pursue, your employer will want to know you have the skills and knowledge necessary to succeed. However, they won’t expect you to have all the skills straight away, particularly if you’re just beginning your career. There are some essential skills, such as punctuality and organisation, that you’ll be expected to possess, regardless of the industry.
