Experience with Horses

I have been riding since the age of 2. At a young age i competed in the Showing discipline successfully at leadrein and first ridden level. At the age of 10 i decided to pursue a career in Eventing and over recent years i have successfully evented up to British Eventing Novice Level, and trained at Intermediate/1*. I have experience in all aspects of grooming and yard work and i am confident on the ground with horses, from youngstock to stallions of a variety of  heights. I am also able to lunge, long rein and drive a horse/pony. I have worked with horses for 4 years as a show groom on a yard that has show ponies/cobs and show jumpers. I have completed 6 months in New Zealand as a groom for a Show Hunter rider where I also lived as an AuPair/Nanny and often had sole charge of two young children ages 2 and 6. Alongside the horses I enjoyed taking the children for days out and spending time with them at home exploring their 40 acre property. Upon my return to the UK I moved over to the Republic of Ireland where I worked  on a breakers yard in Mountrath, breaking and schooling Connemara ponies and also cobs/shires and Part breds.



Key Skills

I am a very happy, bubbly and outgoing person. I am able to clip, pull manes and tails, plait, bath and turnout horses/ponies to a high level. I have turned out show ponies for county level standard, and eventers/showjumpers. I have previously ridden and handled stallions ranging from 13hh to 16hh. I am also capable of lunging, long reining and driving. I feel like i am able to understand every horse individually and cater to their individual needs, particularly if they are sensitive or require a kind attitude. I am happy to work alone or in a team and aim to involve every team member, although i am very self motivated and very encouraging, and do see myself as a team leader.


Strengths and Weaknesses

• Every day with horses is a new day, and there is always something to learn, people to meet and new skills to develop.


• I would like to improve my status as a groom, and possibly get myself a positive reputation as an individual who is known to work hard and provide excellent services. I also feel like i could improve my role in team work, as i do often take a more forward role rather than sitting back and allowing others to give a leadership type input.


• I can provide top class services, ensuring that every one of my services is completed to the highest of standards. I am able to provide assistance in many areas, including turnout, riding and on the ground. I am confident in what i do, and respect every animal i am involved with, using a calm and sensitive approach yet a disciplined one.



• Farming or agricultural work, grooming, riding, handling or competing.

Yes, i would like accommodation, however for the right job would consider making my own arrangements
