Personal Statement - Equine Rehabilitation and Therapy

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

´╗┐Personal Statement ?Riding a horse is not a gentle hobby, to be picked up and laid down like a game of solitaire. It is a grand passion. It seizes a person whole and once it has done so, she will have to accept that her life will be radically changed.? This quote by Ralph Emerson defines my relationship with horses. As a child growing up in London, life was always fast paced and, at times, quite hectic. However for as long as I can remember there was always an escape from the London life.

I decided to specialise in a degree that involved equine rehabilitation or therapy because after university, I?d like to go into a job where I can work with horses to rehabilitate and rehome them.

Conclusion

My love for horses and riding will extend into my gap year, where I plan to travel to Australia to experience the true outback and work with the horses on ranches around the country, learning different styles and finding new purpose to riding.

Overall my gap year has been tailored to allow me to experience some of the most beautiful and exciting areas of the world, and to experience horse riding in a completely different environment.
