The students, who started the five-month course on February 1, range in age from 18 to 29 and include representatives from Britain, Ireland, Sweden and the US.

National Stud managing director Brian O'Rourke said: "I am very pleased with this year's group; they are very keen to take advantage of the huge opportunities provided by the Diploma Course both in the practical and theoretical understanding of the stud season. The experience will stand them in excellent stead for whatever they choose to do afterwards."
