Experience with Horses

I have been riding since I was 3 years old so I have over 18 years experience. I have owned many horses, some competition horses and some with medical issues, unbroken, ex racers and retired ones.

I also have a level 2 horse care diploma.

I have worked on various yards from hunting, livery, riding schools, racing, dressage, eventing and a show jumping  yard.

I have rode a variety of horses, I used to ride cross country and show jump but following an accident, I am re-learning how to jump.  My instructor is helping me with this and build my confidence

Key Skills

I can work alone as long as I have a list of things that need to get done. I work well in a team completing tasks/jobs.

I have prepared and turned horses out for hunting/show jumping and local shows. I have clipped horses but I still need a bit of work. I know methods of restraint when it comes to clipping/Farrier and vets.

I can plait normally but I haven’t been taught how to do it with thread.

I have worked with youngsters and very nervous horses.



Strengths and Weaknesses

I love getting to work with various horses, and I love spending time with them, learning individual characters and getting to ride all types of temperaments.

  • I would like to improve my jump skills, I can only jump tiny jumps (60cm) so far but I would like to progress.


  • I should be considered by employers as I have plenty of equestrian experience and always willing to expand my knowledge about horses. I can bring a youthful and cheery disposition to any work place. I am willing to get my head down and get all jobs done.



  • I would like to gain more experience and knowledge.
  • I have a very cheeky, 22 year old cremello mare, she has two rotated pedal bones, EMS and melanomas. She’s under vet care. She doesn’t need to come with me if I live in as my mother cares for her.


  • I have a full UK drivers license
