Author information

Julie Brega's interest in eventing led her to work with competition horses and, having gained her BHSII, she set up her own equestrian business and trained many students for BHS examinations. Seeing the need for a structured system of study, she began to run correspondence courses and from this developed The Open College of Equine Studies, which now provides distance tuition of the highest quality to students worldwide from its base in Suffolk.
