Have your say

  • Former international dressage groom Lucy Katan will be speaking about the pressures associated with life as a groom at the National Equine Forum at The Royal Veterinary College, London on 27 March.

    Lucy is interested in talking to former grooms about why they didn’t continue in this field. She is also interested in hearing about any work-associated problems from grooms still working in the industry.
