Two Reaseheath equine science undergraduates have won prestigious internships in the USA.
Michelle Hand and Zoe Greenwood have both been awarded the British Equestrian Federation (BEF) competitive internship to go to Virginia Tech’s Middleburg Agricultural Research and Extension (MARE Center).
The MARE Center is a 420 acre equine research and education facility in Middleburg, Virginia – the heart of horse country in the USA. The three month internship will allow our undergraduates to develop research and academic skills in a practical, hands-on, environment.
The programme, which focuses on optimising horse and environmental health, is designed to prepare students for careers in the equine industry, academia or veterinary science by applying classroom knowledge in a ‘real world’ context.
