William Chapman

William graduated in July 2011 with a first class BSc (Hons) Degree in Equine Management also achieving the prize for Outstanding Achievement in Equestrian Studies as well as the best overall student at Moulton College.

Williams dissertation entitled The Use of Bio-electrical Impedance Analysis for Assessing the Hydration of Horses achieved an A+ grade and was nominated for the national Equvalan Thesis of the Year Competition. This is a first for Moulton College and William has been short-listed to one of eight finalists who will present their work to members of the equine industry at Stoneleigh, Warwickshire.

I spent the 30 years prior to my course at Moulton College as a Police Officer. This exposed me to a range of life experiences some of which were positive and some not so good. I selected Moulton College because the College offers very impressive equine facilities and after retiring from the Police Service I wanted to re-train in a totally different area of work. The Equine Management course provides me with such an opportunity.

The course has allowed me to develop and improve my IT skills, develop research and analytical skills and as corny as it may sound, it allows me to better understand my own strengths and weaknesses. The course has provided me with increased self confidence that comes from greater knowledge which I am able to transfer to my own horse management. Horse riding has been a hobby throughout my life and recently (2 years ago) I bought my own horse, my intention is to progress and compete at low level dressage events.
