Experience with Horses

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

3 years part time weekend work at TB stud and 5 years full time experience working in many different disciplines. Mainly polo and eventing.

Despite working mainly in polo and eventing I have also got experience with backing and breaking as well as hunters and caring for Full and part livery horses from different backgrounds and requirements. Whilst working full time I have also competed other people’s horses in showing and endurance and proved to be very successful.

I have worked as part of a team as well as working solo, both enjoyed but team work preferred.

Throughout working life I have also cared for my own horses of which are competed in many disciplines but are mainly for hunting.

Growing up with horses has also meant that I have had access to many different types of horses from all sorts of backgrounds and behaviours therefore I feel that I can understand many situations and apply appropriate skills that are needed.

Currently full time on a well known TB stud.


Key Skills

working alone and working with others. Communication with other colleagues and employers, general administration e.g booking farriers/vets , ordering feed etc

Clipping, plaiting, turning out for shows/hunting/polo/dressage.

Handling/riding young horses particularly thoroughbreds.

Seeing and end result in the job that you are doing whether it be a good or bad outcome, I love working towards a goal.

My riding skills and refine myself in a discipline.

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

I am a hard working and enthusiastic groom that always puts the horses first no matter what the situation and I love to please.



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

I would like to refine my most liked area of horses which is Stud work and become fully established within that sector.
