Experience with Horses

I currently work part time as a barefoot trimmer alongside studying for a MSc degree in McTimoney Animal Chiropractic.

My previous role was a polo groom for a pro player taking full responsibility of his horses, exercising, grooming at games and training/supervision of less experienced staff members.

I have worked in the horse industry for 20+ years in various disciplines including dressage, eventing, trekking centre and riding school. I can work alongside a team but also have the experience of a supervisory role.




Key Skills

working with young horses, backing, schooling and exercise work. Natural horsemanship. competition/game grooming, bandaging, clipping, groundwork. Barefoot trimming and footcare.



Strengths and Weaknesses

  • I really enjoying working with a horse and seeing an improvment wether it be training the young horse or re education of an older horse.
  • I would like to improve my riding further and continue to learn in all areas. I don’t think you can ever stop learning.
  • I am passionate and dedicated to my work with horses.



  • What would you like to do or gain in your next job? 
  • I would like more opportunity to learn about and train horses.


  • Do you need accommodation?       
  • Ideally yes but arrangements could be possible for the right position.


  • Do you have any special requirements for any animals you wish to bring with you?
  • I have one well behaved dog who is used to being on the yard and good in the house.


  • Do you have any ongoing commitments?     
  • I am currently a barefoot trimming student and will require a few dates this year to attend my course.


  • Do you have any holidays booked that an employer needs to know of?   
  • No holidays but dates for my course can be given on request.
