Experience with Horses

I have owned horses since the age of ten and ridden long before i could walk. I have kept my horses on varies types of livery yards over the years and then when i was 16 i attended Bridgwater College and completed a National Diploma in Animal Management. After this i enrolled in a course at Bicton college where i completed a Foundation Degree in Equine Studies. Over the period of my education i did work experience at a variety of places such as vets, studs, riding schools and worked as a freelance groom. I was then offered a job working at a riding school as a weekend head groom and then moved on to another job as a head girl on a small family yard and on the side took up a position as an instructor for children and beginners.



Key Skills

I am good at organisation and time management and i work well within a team or as sole charge. Most of my experience has been in showing, hunting and dressage with my own horses so i am able to turnout to a high standard. I have been out of working in the equine industry for a few years now and this has enabled me to grow my admin, business, sales and communication skills as i have worked in customer service, veterinary sales and now manage a small vet practice currently but i miss working with horses so i am looking for the right role.



Strengths and Weaknesses

I enjoy working outside in the countryside surrounded by horses and animals. I love learning new things along the way and improving myself as a person, rider and worker.

I am hard working, honest and reliable. I bring a lot of experience and strengths to the role.



I would like to work with horses again after a few years out, i still own my own but i miss working with them. I am looking for a varied and challenging role.

If it is a live in position and my current livery yard is too far i would love to option to bring my horse. I do also have a well behaved dog but he can continue to stay with my parents if needed.
