I studied Equine Studies and now work as a mounted police officer for Avon and Somerset Police. Having joined Devon and Cornwall Police in 2007 as a police officer, I pursued my ambition to become a mounted police officer in 2015 with Avon & Somerset Police. Equine is very much worth doing if you want to work with horses, it is a good course to help you expand your knowledge and improve your riding ability. You will thoroughly enjoy it if you want a practical hands on course.
