Katie McIntyre – Equine Studies
Certificate II in Equine Studies
Katie McIntyre has always loved horses, but it wasn’t until mid-highschool that she realised it could actually become her career. She completed the Certificate II in Equine Studies at Box Hill Institute while also doing her VCE at the CAE. About studying a VET in Schools course Katie said the following:
“Studying a VETiS course allowed me to decide whether I just like horses or if I actually want to get into the industry. I now know that I’d like to work in the equine industry as a career. Doing a VETiS is really worth the longer days. I’d like to tell other students that it gives you the opportunity to try out your passions, and also gives you more freedom and responsibility. I also learnt that the best way to do things with standards that I wasn’t previously aware of. It has also made me take up more responsibility,” said Katie.
