Phillip Adams graduated from Reaseheath with a BSc (Hons) in Equine Science whilst he was working as a member of staff on our Equine Unit.
Phil, who holds the BHSAI certificate along with a Diploma in Education and Training, decided to return to education as a mature student after many years of working as an Operations Manager for a large communications company. In that role he was responsible for managing a team of people to meet company objectives.
Prior to this, Phil worked at the Yorkshire Riding Centre under Jane and Christopher Bartle before he relocated to Italy to become a Yard Manager and Federal Rider in Florence.
Phil‘s broad experience of the horse industry fostered a keen interest in gait analysis, anatomy, biomechanical efficiency and the way in which each ridden discipline can affect a horse’s physiology.
Phil is currently completing an MSc in Veterinary Physiotherapy and, since September 2015, he has been Course Manager for the Integrated Masters in Veterinary Physiotherapy and the BSc in Animal Therapy at Writtle University College in Essex.
During my second and third year of study at Reaseheath, my wife had some health issues and without the help, guidance and fantastic teaching abilities of the HE teaching staff I would have never finished my degree and I certainly wouldn’t be where I am today. I can never thank them enough.
