Midlothian trainees win awards
Midlothian Equine trainees, Morag Williams from Pathhead and Lucy Philip from Bonnyrigg, both won awards at Lantra Scotland’s ALBAS.
At the awards for Land-based and Aquaculture Skills last Thursday (March 4), Morag (37) won the Equine Learner of the Year category.
She said: “For one of the first times in my life, I am doing what I truly love. I enjoy learning about the equine industry and just want to gain as much knowledge as I can.”
Lucy (22) won the SCQF Level 7-8 category, and a CARAS award. She said: “When I was younger, I volunteered at a local Riding for the Disabled centre, and that’s when my love of horses really started. I’ve enjoyed doing Horse Care at SRUC and have since completed my HNC and HND in Equine Studies.”
