Connor’s Story

Horse-mad Connor bagged himself a dream placement when he was invited to do a week's work experience at Lower Dale Farm.

"He learnt the difference between keeping horses as a hobby and as a business."
- Hayley- Pure Employment Officer

Connor has a learning disability and as such struggles to focus on tasks, his love for horses, and his experience looking after them  in his spare time, made this work experience placement the perfect learning curve for him.

His employment advisor, Hayley, said:

This placement was perfect for Connor because he learnt the difference between looking after horses as a hobby and looking after them as a business. He really thrived at the farm and enjoyed it so much that he rang them up independently to ask for a job with them.
