Strengths and Weaknesses

  • What do you most enjoy about working with horses?      

I have a natural love of horses which keeps drawing me back to wanting to work with them. I enjoy working and caring for all horses and able to handle all different temperaments. I feel passionate about their welfare, as well as riding and training them. I love to see their progression as you train with them and bond together.

Why should employers consider you above any other job seeker?

I am a reliable, honest hard worker, willing to take on any task that is given to me and have a “can do” attitude-aiming to complete all tasks in a timely manner. Taking pride in my work, I have high standards with everything I do. I strongly believe in being a good timekeeper. I am confident and a happy person. I am also comfortable and self-motivated working alone and strive to promote a professional image in completing the task to the best of my ability, no matter what it is. I consider myself to be a very good communicator, both in terms of my verbal communication skills and my listening skills and I am comfortable requesting direction or support in order to ensure I deliver to the best of my ability. I can communicate on all different levels and deal with high-pressure situations well. I am calm, friendly and approachable. Also a non-smoker.
