Experience with Horses

I am 36 years old, I have my BHSAI & I have worked in the equestrian industry for approx 15 years.  I have a large amount of experience with competition horses mostly dressage horses, event horses & hunters.  I am a competent rider & I compete BD, BE & BS.  I have produced my own 4 year old who competes at BD Prelim & Novice, working Elementary at home – we won the Area Festival Final at Field House 2018 & we won the BD National Championships at Hartbury in 2018 – only at prelim …..but you have to start a youngster off at the beginning!  I have also competed him at BS 90cm & 95cm.  I have evented several horses at BE 90cm & 1m. I am competent & experienced at schooling both youngsters & older more trained horses, hacking out, getting event horses & hunters fit up the gallops & lunging /pessoa.  I am particulary strong at schooling horses on the flat.  I also enjoy SJ & XC schooling.  I am fully competent at all yard duties, clipping, plaiting & turning out.  I am perfectly capable sole charge and / or as part of a team or leading a team.

Looking to stay within Cheshire/Shropshire area.

I have also done alot of freelance teaching at equestrian centres, pony club & private clients.

I thoroughly enjoy schooling horses and the opportunity to compete / produce horses would be even better.


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 am particulary good at dressage/flatwork schooling.  I have been told my plaits are “amazing” on numerous occasions so i believe i am very good at turning a horse out! I also have OCD and i am very good at keeping everything organised & tidy!

I have been told im very good at clipping, but in all honesty I hate it!


Strengths and Weaknesses

• What do you most enjoy about working with horses?


• Is there anything you’d like to improve?

Riding , as you can never stop learning.  I would love the opportunity to ride older more trained horses to learn more advanced dressage movements.  I would also love the opportunity to improve my jumping as I really enjoy it but it doesnt come naturally to me & I have to try hard & practice alot .

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

I am a straight talking, honest, hard working girl with a good sense of humour who is reliable, dedicated & good at her job.



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

Ideally a rider or rider/groom position on a dressage or eventing yard.

• Do you need accommodation?

More than likely unless it is commutable distance from the Wirral.

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

I have a dog & a horse (gelding)

• Do you have any ongoing commitments?


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

No but flexibility to compete my own horse would be good.  I am happy to be flexible back.
