Experience with Horses

I’ve have been around horses since I was 4 volunteering at a riding school and from the age of 14 at an Arabian stud.  

I completed a national award in horse management course at Brooksby Melton College. Where I also completed a NVQ2 in horsecare and BHS Stage 1 care and riding.

I then went on to a 9 week apprenticeship at the National Stud followed by a 10 month placement on a thoroughbred stud where I was offered a permanent position following my training. 

Since then I have worked on studs, livery yards, competition yards and a riding school. I also briefly worked at a pet shop and ran my own pet sitting business.


Key Skills

I work well within a team or on my own initiative. 

I am confident in handling a wide range of horses from foals to competition horses and stallions. 

Very organised and I take pride in my work. 


 Strengths and Weakness

I have always loved being around horses whether that’s caring for them or riding. I’ve never imagined doing anything other than working in the equine industry. I look after and love any animal in my care like my own.

Having been hacking only for the last few years I would love to get back into schooling and bringing on inexperienced and young horses. 

I have a very good understanding of natural horsemanship and would love to expand my knowledge and understanding of horse behaviour within a professional yard. 

I am also very interested in fostering foals, having unfortunately experienced this on a few occasions both helping and organising, I enjoyed being part of bringing some happiness to the mare and foal after suffering a loss

I am a very hard worker. Very trustworthy and happy to be left as a home groom or sole charge. 

I’m a very quiet and kind handler, I can gain nervous horses trust but can also control more bolshy horses without a heavy hand. 

Always happy to try new things and new experiences and I’m a quick learner.



I would love to get back onto a competition yard one that has a couple of foals a year would be perfect! I work best on my own or within a small friendly team. 

 Ideally would like to bring my dog (Vizsla, neutered male) but not essential if part time and local to Peterborough
