BGA WHERE TO TRAIN 

 

ABOUT 

The British Grooms Association (BGA) is the membership organisation for those that work and train with horses. With the launch of the Student Zone in September 2016, there is an opportunity to attract current and aspiring equine students to the organisation.

The BGA will become the place to visit for those that plan to train or study to work with horses. Supported by other BEF Members, we will dominate the search for equestrian training options.

Where to Train will become the ‘go to’ research tool for anyone that wishes to take part in any form of equestrian training. 

Launching on 1st September, as an impartial, easy to use tool, it will give the user the opportunity to search via training options, courses, sectors and location. All entries will be an accredited training option, so giving the user confidence in their search.

 

MORE THAN JUST AN ADVERT

There is no better opportunity to promote a career with horses than an engaging talk from someone that has been there and done it!

As well as getting the advertising exposure, with annual directory listing, the BGA will visit your college/training establishment to deliver an inspiring talk to your students.

The pitfalls, highlights and real life challenges of transferring from student life to working life will all be discussed, and hopefully your learners will be inspired to turn their studies into a career.
