Work Experience

Elm Farm Stud welcomes all work experience pupils from school, college and university to come and work along side Karen Tapscott on her yard in Essex. Pupils will complete daily general yard duties that are included working on competition/training/livery yard as well as any additional skills the student wants to learn. There is also the opportunity to work with Lusitano Stallions, young stock and other competition horses. Pupils may also get a chance to learn Karen's training methods hands on and also have the opportunity to ride.

If you are interested in joining Elm Farm Stud for your work experience, please contact us today using the contact form on our 'contact us' page.


"Having spent the last 2 weeks at Elm Farm Stud I am very happy to say it is such an amazing yard! Since day one I have been welcomed into the community with open arms and I have made some life long friends. Thank you to you all for treating me the way you have. I have learnt some life long skills that will help me in the future in my career choice. I would definitely recommend this yard to anyone who is looking for work experience placements or lessons. I shall definitely come back to visit soon! Thank you."
