We catch up with former equine apprentice, Sian Bessant, who is delighted to achieve a distinction in her apprenticeship.

Recognising the achievements of our learners is extremely rewarding as we understand the hard work and dedication it takes to achieve your goals.

We are delighted to award one of our fantastic former equine apprentices, Sian Bessant, a Certificate of Recognition for recently passing her apprenticeship with a distinction.

Sian completed her level 2 equine groom apprenticeship at Whittington Eventing, home of established 5* international event rider, Francis Whittington, and was supported by her equine Trainer Coach, Fran Sagina.


Sian says, “I’m really pleased to receive my Certificate of Recognition because I was delighted to achieve a distinction in my apprenticeship! I really enjoyed going to competitions and grooming in a competitive atmosphere. My Trainer Coach, Fran Sagina, supported me by having regular contact and helping me with any questions I may have had. My employer helped improve my riding and gave me the opportunity to ride some of the more experienced horses. In the future, my goal is to continue to progress my riding and compete to higher levels. Thank you everyone who helped me achieve my goals. I’m so excited to see what my future holds.”


Fran adds, “Well done Sian for all your hard work and dedication and thank you to the amazing team at Whittington Eventing for the help and support you gave Sian. It has been brilliant to see a learner gain so much knowledge and experience, and to have been given the opportunities Sian received at Whittington Eventing, which contributed towards her receiving an amazing distinction!”


Well done Sian – We are looking forward to following your future success!

We will continue to issue our Certificates of Recognition throughout the year, with regular updates on how our learners are making a difference to their lives or that of those around them.
