Experience with Horses

Previously worked for two seasons for international event rider, taking care of horses at home and away at events. Groomed at events as a freelance groom ranging from BE90-5star.



Key Skills

Key skills include exceptional organisation, working alone/sole charge, working in a team, clipping, plaiting, turning out for competition, hacking, schooling (up to BD Medium level), administration (such as accounts, feed orders, livery invoices etc), competition entries, marketing, legal / contractual affairs.



Strengths and Weaknesses

  • I love seeing horses improve and watching them grow. I find being in their presence exceptionally calming and I love building relationships with them as individuals and being involved in their development.


  • I would like to improve my knowledge on injury rehab and also my confidence when jumping.


  • I have spent 6 years working in an international company which is in a non-equine industry. I know how to conduct myself professionally in all situations and also have the skills to help run a business as well as looking after the horses.



  • I would like to gain a little more happiness! I am leaving my current career as a Contracts Manager in the Aerospace Industry as it is incredibly pressured and stressful, but in a way that has caused me to suffer illness. I am not very happy doing what I am currently doing, and when I am at the yard is the time I am happiest. I truly loved the two seasons I worked as an event groom and want to find that happiness again.


  • I do not need accommodation.


  • I may bring my own horse if the opportunity was right, but this is not a hard requirement.


  • I have no ongoing commitments.
