Experience with Horses

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

I gained most my experience and knowledge working for Rodney Powell at the age of 17. I also have experience working at top busy event yards in Germany with Julia Mestern. I have ridden since the age of 3 and Evented all my life – I currently compete at intermediate/3* with my two horses. I gained most of the Pony Club achievement badges and had my C+ test.


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

My best skill would probably be riding, I can exercise any type of horse, with experience backing, breaking and rehabilitating, specialising in youngsters.

I have great turn out skills, I can plait, clip to a high standard.

I can work either by myself or with others easily – I am self motivated so no matter what I make sure a task is done regardless.

Great organisation and communication skills, time keeping and efficiency.



Strengths and Weaknesses

  • What do you most enjoy about working with horses?
  • The sense of achievement when the horses are happy and well looked after.
  • A very rewarding job if done properly
  • The people you meet throughout the industry


  • Is there anything you’d like to improve?
  • I would love to get my HGV Licence one day.


  • Why should employers consider you above any other job seeker?
  • I have always been surrounded by horses, so I have a great understanding of how they work and their characteristics. I am also a rider not just a groom so i could have some input from that degree if needed, and as a rider I have high expectations myself of how I like my own horses to be looked after and therefore I could bring that forward to the job.



  • What would you like to do or gain in your next job?
  • would love to gain more contacts throughout the industry, travel to international shows.


  • Do you need accommodation?
  • Preferably yes but not essential


  • Do you have any special requirements for any animals you wish to bring with you?
  • 1 dog – very lovely and easy going


  • Do you have any ongoing commitments?
  • I do event myself so would need to be flexible around my events. 1/2 weekend days a month


  • Do you have any holidays booked that an employer needs to know of?
  • not yet
