Well, my course at the Irish National Stud is now finished, having had the graduation yesterday afternoon. The 25 of us graduated, each receiving a Certificate stating that we completed the five or so month course at this well known property.
So, now I have friends and horse related contacts from Germany, Australia, New Zealand, Ireland, England, Hungary, France, Canada, Scotland, Belgium, and America!
Half of the students are checking out the Southern Hemisphere shortly, most coming to Oz and a few to New Zealand so it’ll be awesome to be able to catch up with them. One will be just up the road!
Head off today to see Connemara and then on to Giant’s Causeway. Then – the horsey area of France that is Normandy! Going there with one of the girl’s from the course – can’t wait!
You cannot beat travel with work – the experiences, the people you meet and the contacts you gain.
