Overseas Trips Ahead For Scholarship Recipients
Three young women working in the thoroughbred industry are heading overseas early next year to enhance their careers thanks to scholarships promoted by the NZTBA Sunline Education Trust. The Sunline International Management Scholarship has been awarded to Kyla Robb, and due to the high calibre of applicants and the generosity of the Keith and Faith Taylor Family both Hannah Airey and Laura Macnab will study at the Irish National Stud. Robb will spend 30 weeks experiencing the operational infrastructure and systems at three of the world’s premier farms - Cheveley Park Stud in England, Coolmore Stud in Ireland and Winstar Farm in Kentucky. Meanwhile, Keith and Faith Taylor equine scholarship recipients Hannah Airey and Laura MacNab will travel to Kildare next January to undertake the five-month Breeding course at the Irish National Stud. The course covers both practical and academic units covering everything from business studies, to animal welfare and pasture management. The NZTBA has been sponsoring students to the Irish National Stud for nearly 30 years.
