Im half way through the NVQ Level 1,just passed my mucking out & feeding assessments
I'm the only one doing the Level 1,the other 2 are doing the Level 2,so everything they do,I have to do....they've just started jumping,thought I'd get out of it...how wrong was I.
The only thing with it is that you have to put the hours in and I'm struggling at the moment,supposed to start at 8.30am but I have a 7 year old who I have to get to school in the morning and lets just say,our yard manager isnt very understanding.
We usually do all the yard duties first,I muck out about 8 ponies every day,then we have an hours lecture or practical session,then we ride for an hour.
I didnt realise when I started the course there'd be so much theory work,we get homework to take home and complete and everything.
I dont really have the time for it now,but I'm glad I tried it out.
Just got my first loan horse and to afford her I need to get a full time job which means ending this course..so I'm a little confuddled at the moment on what to do..
