Experience with Horses

My career to date has been within the health & fitness fields and the travel industry as a guide and trekking leader, keeping me active and always maintaining that enthusiasm to learn and be a more outdoors person.  My passion since early childhood has been horses, I was lucky to be a horse owner for numerous years and also work as a groom in a couple of positions for eventers and endurance riders,  and as a guide and head charge with a trekking center and a riding school overseas, looking after the wellbeing of 32 horses and 7 ponies.


Key Skills

Happy to work alone and/or work with others, quick and eager to learn, experienced with fit and younger horses, all usual yard duties to include mucking out, checking and cleaning of fields, feed and haying, exercising, lunging, schooling, turning out, bringing in, grooming, tacking up, tack cleaning. experienced in escorting rides varying in experience from beginners to advanced, lead rides from half and full day to up to a week’s duration, assisted and enjoyed providing lessons for beginner riders.

Strengths and Weaknesses

Im a more mature applicant who is keen to learn and work hard and has been active in my career and hobbies, and never one to shy away from the weather, hard graft and long days etc,  to make sure the job is done to my best ability.  I have for the longest time now been waiting for the right opportunity to build a career within the equine field, so the opportunity to learn and develop whilst actively working and gaining all skills in every area would be fantastic.

My personal circumstances fairly recently combined with Covid etc has enabled me to re-evaluate my future and going forward to pursue a career that would make me really happy and would be what I believe is my lasting vocation in life, a career I can continue and enjoy for numerous years and be part of a progressive positive team.

I would welcome the opportunity to contribute to the needs and welfare of horses. In return for an opportunity, I can offer you hard work, enthusiasm to learn, and a happy, positive disposition.  I am noted for my flexibility, willingness, and being professional, and reliability.  My career has enabled me to work with a huge variety of people in many situations and I feel many of these strengths would make me a great candidate for your position.

I am happy to relocate, but would like to live in.  I have no horse to bring with me.
