ABRS Success for Chloe
Chloe, a 17 year old student at Easy Horse Care Rescue Centre is thrilled to have recently completed her ABRS exams at the centre, which is the only riding school in the Costa Blanca who is a member of the Association of British Riding Schools thereby offering pupils the opportunity to gain examinations recognised worldwide for anyone wishing to obtain a career with horses. ABRS examinations offer a wide ranging testing system which enable pupils to build up worthwhile gradings and certificates in preparation for having an equestrian career or taking up full time training.
When Chloe came to the Rescue Centre and realised that they offered the chance to undertake ABRS exams she knew it was an opportunity she couldn't afford to miss and "jumped" at the chance to take the exams.
Chloe initially came to the centre as a 16 year old student and volunteer. She left school at 15 without any qualifications but had a passion for horses and dreamed one day that she would be able to pursue a career with them. Indeed Chloe couldn't picture herself doing anything else other than working with horses and was over the moon to be given the opportunity to begin work at the Centre. Her hands on role has seen Chloe assisting with a wide range of tasks not only such as mucking out and helping with feeds but even assisting the vet at the Centre with operations, making her a valued member of the team. Chloe said "Since I have been here I have been involved in the care of some wonderful horses, I have helped nurse Faith who has recently been fitted with a temporary prosthetic limb and a horse named Pandora who sadly we were too late to save. Since arriving at the Centre I have learned how to properly care for a horse's needs and I am a committed member of the team. I would recommend other young people to get involved at the Rescue Centre; if anyone is interested in volunteering for a few hours a week or have any questions about the Centre they can contact me on our Facebook page or e-mail me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org. Alternatively please visit our website at www.easyhorsecare.net".
Chloe who speaks fluent Spanish also acts as interpreter for the Easy Horse Care Rescue Centre working in close contact with the local police, councils and Seprona who is the branch of the Guardia Civil responsible for the protection of animals. Should anybody come across any animal in distress and have difficulties with communication due to language barriers Chloe is able to be contacted via a hotline number of 655 144 487 whereby she will be on hand to help!
The Rescue Centre is expanding rapidly and is now home to 36 rescued horses, ponies and donkeys. Young people like Chloe are needed to carry on and progress the work of the Centre; volunteers who may be looking for a route into an equestrian career or anybody interested in work experience placements are encouraged to contact us on the above e-mail address.
