Experience with Horses

I am passionate about equestrianism, in particular the practical elements and would like to further develop my career in the equestrian industry . I am a highly motivated individual who is willing to work hard to pursue my goals. I am hardworking and complete every job to the best of my ability. I am reliable and can work in isolation and  well within a team environment. I completed a Level Three Horse Care Management course at Moreton Morrell College during 2018, during the first year at college I began working on a racing yard where I started off completing general yard duties. I then progressed onto riding young colts and fillies up the gallops.  I would ride out and complete general yard duties early in the morning before starting my day of lectures at college. I have also gained experience when working on a show jumping yard, where I would complete general yard duties and ensure each horse was cared for individually.  I was able to gain experience in handling young stock and stallions.  Prior to starting college I  worked on two private yards on a voluntary basis where I fulfilled the role of completing general yard duties. I was also schooling and exercising a variety of horses over a 12 month period.  During this time I also competed at many local show jumping, dressage and showing competitions on behalf of the owners.  These voluntary roles helped me gain experience in relation to the responsibilities that are required when organising and managing a five stabled yard.  This also  enabled me to experience the speed and quality of care that is required when working in the equestrian industry when in sole charge.

I have also groomed for a local event rider, this  job involved going to BE events with the horses, ensuring they were immaculately turned out. The job role enabled me to experience the fast procedures that are carried out after the cross country phase, so the horse’s health and well being is the main priority throughout the cooling off process. Another experience I gained when working with Lauren was the organisation and preparation that is carried out when preparing for an overnight competition.

I am currently employed by a local showing/hunting yard, this is a family run yard I enjoy the role, however I would like to experience working on a larger yard with a team and potential future progression.
