    Currently organising my equine work experience, I've ridden since I was little and worked at a riding stables 2013-15, but now need a week placement to be within the 18month time bracket.

    What I was wondering is would it be better to do something on a racing yard or stud where I'm more likely to see vet stuff, or do something at a basic riding school or livery yard which is more 'normal'? Is there something unis prefer? Thanks

    They don't prefer riding schools over racing yards or studs, or vice versa. But given that you're horsey I would suggest going somewhere that you stand to learn most, so probably not a riding school since you've already spent countless hours on one.

    Don't worry too much about seeing vetty things (although it's always a plus!), for husbandry placements like these universities just as interested in your ability to learn how to look after animals (and therefore prevent potential problems).

    Best of luck with organising a placement.
