“I compete my own horse and I’ve always been interested in how events are run. I did my work experience in the event office at Bolesworth International and then I volunteered at the five day show to gain extra practical experience.

“I was also on the front desk at a Christmas Fayre which I helped to run at college. It was nice to welcome in so many visitors.

“Reaseheath is very welcoming. I’ve never missed a day of college because I want to be here. It’s a lovely campus with great places to hang out with your friends.”
