I recently graduated from university with a 2:1 BSc in Applied Equitation Science. The course covered a variety of modules including the following, all of which are relevant for this role; Equine Industry, Practice & Welfare, Training & Behaviour, Equid Structure & Function, Nutrition & Physiology, Health & Rehabilitation, Veterinary Issues and Managing Equine Performance.


I am now a freelance groom and rider covering areas of South West Devon. I have a range of different clients with varying needs and disciplines. I have worked for Bosanko Sport Horses which buys 3-4 year olds from Holland and sells them to top eventers. I regularly had sole charge and was left alone. One of my clients has been a working equitation competition yard which had a Lusitano stallion, a polo pony and a hanoverian dressage horse. I was lucky enough to compete their Hanoverian at a working equitation competition. My other clients range from happy hackers, to horses which need schooling that may be green or have issues which need working on and miniature horses.

Qualifications horse related:

BSc (Hons) in Equitation Science, FdSc Equitation, Training and Behaviour, BHS Stage 2 & Ride and road safety. I have my BHS Stage 2 teach booked.

Key Skills

I’m good at working alone and as part of a team.
