Experience with Horses

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

I have been involved with horses all my life. As a young teenager I was particularly interested in showjumping, and while living abroad I brought on my young horses in this discipline. More recently, however, I have focussed on dressage, and have trained my own horse (who was not bred for dressage) from preliminary to BD advanced medium over several years, currently training at PSG level.

I have experience working as a groom on a professional dressage yard, where I was a member of a team and when needed, was left responsible.  References can be provided.


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 able to carry out all standard yard duties to a high standard, and I am able to plait. I have a relaxed and friendly character and enjoy working as part of a team, but am able to work individually when required.


Strengths and Weaknesses

  • What do you most enjoy about working with horses?

I most enjoy getting to know the horses I am working with, so that they can be treated as individuals. I also particularly enjoy riding and helping the horses to progress through their training.

  • Is there anything you’d like to improve?

I would like like to learn to clip, and potentially gain further experience grooming at competitions. I don’t have much recent experience lungeing, but with some guidance would be able to pick it back up quickly.

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

I am dependable, enthusiastic and easy to work with, and I always bring a positive attitude.


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

I would like a job as a groom, ideally involving some riding.

  • Do you need accommodation?

As long as relatively local to St Albans, Herts, I will not need accommodation.

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

No, but if there is the option to bring own horse I might consider this.

  • Do you have any ongoing commitments?

I will be going back to university at the end of September.

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