Because horsey girl,
Charlotte Packham, has decided to have another go at winning the title,
the most prestigious beauty pagent in the country.This time, however, she is determined to
win. She also wants to run her
own heat, Miss Equestrian “I
will be entering again for the 2010 competition,” she says. “I had such
a great time. I met loads of fantastic people. It was so lovely for me
to be a girl for a change instead of being in jeans and ariat boots.
Walking down that catwalk was such a great experience for me.
“Since the car accident I
was in a few years ago, I have been unable to ride, and although I am
the one who looks after the horses and keeps them looking tidy etc,
it's always my partner, Ben's show as he is the rider. So it was really
nice to have a few days where I was in the limelight.” But she doesn’t just want to be in the
lime-light herself. She wants to share it with other horsey girls.
“In my opinion, horsey
girls should enter the competition,” she says. “To prove to the general
public that we can scrub up OK and that beauty is in the eye of the
beholder. I had the most amazing time at the semi - final and at the
final. I met some amazing girls. Obviously there were some who thought
that they deserved the title more than others, but you get that in all
walks of life I think.”

Equine is a leisure pastime, professional sporting activity
and a thriving industry that offers employment opportunities on all
levels. The equine industry can be broadly divided into the
Thoroughbred and non-Thoroughbred sectors. Most people in the horse
world start with practical jobs such as being a stud groom, riding
instructor, equine physiotherapist or yard manager. Nowadays there are
plenty of opportunities on the research side such as working in
nutrition, horse rehabilitation, technical veterinary support or equine
welfare. The College's Equine Training and Development Unit provides
stabling for around 40 horses and incorporates a range of stable
designs. There is also a 50 x 40m indoor arena and two outdoor arenas,
horse walker, jumping paddocks and a cross country course. At the Unit
students can develop practical skills, from grooming, tacking up and
clipping through to lungeing and first aid skills. The Lordships Stud
is an extensive working stud unit which houses a variety of broodmares,
foals, stallions and youngstock. It operates as a commercial stud and
as an excellent educational facility for students.In line with BHS
training centre standards and due to the nature of the horses at the
unit, we ask that students weigh no more than 13 stone. Non-riding stud
options are available where appropriate.

have been riding at a riding school called Belmont Riding Center. Its
near Mill Hill in London. I had been riding there for about 3 months,
when a new horse arrived from somewhere. The instructor gave him to me
for one of the the class lessons, and I was one of the first to ride
him. In fact only about three of the schools clients rode Bert in his
time there. Bertie was highly strung. The first time I got on him I
daren't put my feet in the stirups for fear that the contact of the
stirrups on his side would send him into gallop. By the end of the
lesson, I had come to the conclusion, that Bertie resembled a polo
pony, and on those grounds I had an affectionate spot for him. I later
found out that he was a reject from the polo school and had been sent
to the riding school to see if he was good for anything. I rode him in
lessons for about five months ... I often thought that if I were to
have a horse again I might like something like Bert. Then one day I
turned up at the yard to be told that Bert was being got rid of ...
this was the last ride I would ever have on him ... and then the
ultimatum ... buy him or say good bye !!!
The descision was frought with panic ... I was unprepared for such a
dilema ... but another five months on and I am the happiest I have been
for a long time.

generally and support by all possible means the common interests of its
affiliated clubs and associations.
