Mary King to inspire delegates at college careers day

  • Eventer Mary King will be at the College of West Anglia tomorrow for a day dedicated to raising aspirations.

    The five-time Olympian will lead a day designed to encourage delegates to think big in terms of both career and personal goals at the college’s Cambridge campus.

    The event also includes a demonstration from Lindsey Tyas, a member of the Great Britain para-driving team who will be going for gold in Holland later this year.

    A series of lectures and arena demonstrations will also be on offer, ranging from equine dentistry to polo and dog agility and the whole event is free, but pre-registration is necessary.

    “We are delighted to welcome Mary to the college for a day which promises to be a fantastic opportunity for anyone who wants to learn more about the career possibilities in equine and small animal care,” said campus director Alison Barber.

    A packed schedule will also include a presentation on responsible pet and horse ownership by the Blue Cross charity which the college is supporting. There are also more than a dozen trade stands and refreshments.

    The full day, from 10am to 4pm, includes: side-saddle techniques, Le Trec, equine physiotherapy, equine therapy centre with aqua treadmill and spa, riding simulator, nutrition, hoof care, small animal handling, overcoming phobias and dog behaviour.

    The event is completely free and registration is at: www.cwa.ac.uk
