Experience with horses:

I worked on a yard in Yorkshire with 30 plus horses on for around 5 years. Working with happy hackers to eventers. I groom for a close friend of mine, this includes bathing, plaiting and turn out of her horse before attending the competition where I tack up, shout tests, clean tack, and turn out both horse and rider to a high standard.

I used to own my own horse until I unfortunately lost him 5 years ago. I enjoyed spending time with him even when he could not be ridden. I love being on the ground grooming, bathing, mucking out and general care for the horses. I then shared and brought on a horse with my friend who is 4yrs old and we got him going.

I also work at Bobbi’s horse camp four times a year, where I work as part of a team. Seven of us look after 40-50 campers and horses over three to four days. We work closely with keeping all horses fed, mucked out and happy whilst the horses and riders attend several lessons a day with top instructors at somerford Park.

I have recently got a new 4yr old gelding, working well on the flat and proving to be a fab jumper, I am enjoying bringing him on myself slowly and enjoy spending time on the ground with him and going for walks together in hand.


Key Skills

I work well under pressure, and I am able to apply myself to any situation in a calm and reasonable manner. I work well independently but also work well as team. I work to a high standard when turning out horses for a competition and take pride in making sure everything is organised and ready for the day of the competition. I can ride, lunge and exercise horses.

I am now currently training to be a small animal veterinary nurse, with the hopes to move onto large animals in the future. I have always had a passion for horses.



Strengths and Weaknesses

  • I love working on the ground with the horses, as I enjoy the caring and personal side of being with horses.


  • I would love to improve my plaiting to a high standard.


  • I would love to be given the opportunity to work alongside a team with horses. I am the most hard working person and I enjoy a fast paced environment where I can improve my skills daily. I love being outside whatever the weather.



  • What would you like to do or gain in your next job?
  • A chance to work alongside top horses and riders, whilst working in a close fun team.


  • Do you need accommodation?
  • No as I would like to stay at home if possible


  • Do you have any special requirements for any animals you wish to bring with you?
  • Yes – I have a horse


  • Do you have any ongoing commitments?
  • No


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