Experience with Horses

Outline your experience with horses here/the scope of your freelance services.

I started riding when I was a child, always owned horses, apart from now. I have about 4 years working experience with horses, including, riding schools and a rescue centre.


Key Skills

What are you particularly good at? For example: working alone, working with others, clipping, plaiting, turning out for shows, handling stallions, handling/riding young horses, non-equine skills etc

I am good at working alone as well as within a team or leading a team. I’ve got a good eye so my trimming and clipping skills are good. I think I excel with handling difficult horses, as I am very patient and calming.


Strengths and Weaknesses

  • What do you most enjoy about working with horses?

I enjoy rehabilitation, seeing a horse progress and improve is very rewarding.

I love working outside and getting stuck into the hard labour.

  • Is there anything you’d like to improve?

I’d like to improve on my riding and possibly teaching.

  • Why should employers consider you above any other job seeker?

I work very hard, I’m not lazy. I have a huge love for horses, I am knowledgable in equine behaviour and modern/ humane training methods. And I have people skills, with a positive, enthusiast attitude.



  • What would you like to do or gain in your next job?

I’d like to learn and gain experience in different disciplines in the horse world I.e dressage, event yard. I’d like more responsibility or room for progression within the role.

  • Do you need accommodation?

I would preferably but not essential.

  • Do you have any special requirements for any animals you wish to bring with you?

I do have one small dog.

  • Do you have any ongoing commitments?


  • Do you have any holidays booked that an employer needs to know of?
