Equine Job Groomed Manitoba Student for Vet School

This summer, Chantel Dunlop of Seven Sisters Falls, Man., was standing in a warm-up ring at Calgary's Spruce Meadows when she read an email message confirming her acceptance into the Western College of Veterinary Medicine (WCVM).

I remember crying out, ’Oh my God!’, and I started to feel shaky,” says Dunlop, who was working as a groom for Olympic medallist Jill Henselwood’s show jumping team. “I’m pretty sure people were wondering why I had that goofy grin on my face.”

Dunlop began the four-year veterinary program at the WCVM in mid-August. She and her classmates received an official welcome to the college and the veterinary profession during a white coat ceremony on Sept. 21, in Saskatoon, Sask.

Choosing a riding facility can seem like a daunting task but there are things you can look for and questions you can ask to help you make an informed decision.
