Experience with Horses

I went to collage to do pre-farriery in 2016 i passed the course but was unable to find an apprenticeship.

I first started working with horses when i was 13 just cleaning them out and bringing them in a started to learn to ride to a basic level.

The second job got i was looking after 3 trotter from the beginning of training season in February to the end of racing in September i held this job for 2-3 years. i left when i went to collage.I was in charge from morning feed to last checks at 11pm. At this point my horse knowledge really improved and i got in to a nice routine and learnt to sort all types of health problems and to change there food throughout a race season.

In my second year at this job i broke in 1 horse to ride from harness and even had to exercise her to get fit for the harness racing as well as got the chance to drive her thought out the race season. I also started doing other work when i was in this role. i helped exercise an eventer and two race horse. i didn’t stay at the job long mind.

when i was on work experience in new market it got me handling a lot of different types of horses from foals tb to heavy shire horses and fit excitable race horses.

I have got experience of handling young horse as i have had two foals myself which i handled from slightly handled. They are currently rising two and have both be long-reining and lunging they have been turned away to mature.

I also have broke in my rising 5 year old to harness and she has been slightly raced last year racing but due to covid hadn’t this year, I am currently bringing her on under saddle . I also rescued a 6 year old Arab x from an abusive home. I got her confidence back over 6 months as you could not get anywhere near her and got her back riding.

I went to Ireland for a month and work on a tb stud yard but due to family commitments I had to return home.

I have reasonly left a yard job at a racing yard so I am confident in handling excitable fit horse and use to a busy yard setting. I was at this job for 8 months.
