Experience with Horses

Ridden both English and western.

My partner and I finished working a 7 month season with Slow Cottage Polo team in Oct ’19. We then headed off to Canada on a working holiday visa but, in light of the current situation with Covid, are back looking for work in the UK.

We have previously worked a 6 month season at Tidworth Polo Club where we had to exercise, groom, and prepare the polo horses for lessons and matches. Also at Eos Arabians, a stud farm in Germany, where we did 7 months looking after the mares, stallions and foals. And at Rockrose Equestrian Centre, in Scotland, for 6 months as stable-hands in their rapidly growing livery yard.

In 2016 we finished a 6 month internship at the Saltriver Horsemanship Institute in Western Australia. We were learning how to start young horses and retrain them the ‘Ray Hunt’ way. This involved working, and communicating, with horses in a way they understand and looking at how we, as riders, create problems in our horses and how we can fix them.

I have done low level jumping and cross country, canter track work, flat work, riding young horses, hacking/trekking, retraining Thoroughbreds, exercising polo horses.

I have:

  • Worked with the RDA
  • Worked with young horses and stallions
  • Worked with breeding mares and foals
  • Worked with Polo horses
  • Run the club horse string and the ‘yard’ section of the Polo club
  • Assisted in the Equine Wellness Centre (caring for ill and injured horses) and with breeding
  • Retrained thoroughbreds
  • Cared for over 40 horses (just the two of us)
  • Prepared horses for the trainers and at competitions
  • Prepared horses for Polo lessons and matches
  • Assisted in starting horses
  • Exercised horses
  • Worked with troubled/problem horses
  • Mucked out stables & paddocks
  • Turned out and brought in horses
