Experience with Horses

I started grooming and riding when I was 16. I spent 2 1/2 years working for Daniel Watson, 1 1/2 years working for Alice Oppenhiemer and under 2 yrs working and riding for Emile Faurie.

I have been riding competition horses since 16 years old, from young horses to Grand Prix. I have experience schooling, lunging (lunge jumping) hacking and warming up for the riders i have worked for.




Key Skills

National and international grooming at shows






Warming up and cooling off


Mucking out /general duties

Preparing horses for riding

Tack cleaning

Putting on and off walkers

Turning in and out

Bandaging (applying therapeutic equipment)




Strengths and Weaknesses

  • Seeing horses improve not only under saddle but their personal development. I love working with Horses who are misunderstood and helping them through it.
  • I am a shy person who tends to take a while to get comfortable in a new job.
  • I am very hardworking, passionate and ambitious in working with Horses. I see them all as individuals and aim to work with them to make sure they have the best care.



  • My focus is to work on my riding skills along side caring for the Horses. My ambition is to be a rider and train horses as since owning my own it has driven me to push for it.
  • I would like accommodation as even though i drive, i would prefer to live on site with the horses.
  • I currently own a 17hh Hanoverian dressage horse and an owned 17″3hh Mare who would need to come with me.
