Experience with Horses

I grew up with my own ponies competing with Pony Club in Showjumping and Grassroots teams, and hunting with the BSV.  After studying Human Biology at University, I returned to working with horses at training yards gaining my Stage 3 Care, Stage 2 Ride and PTT before taking an Instructor role at a riding school/livery yard where I progressed to Assistant Manager. Since then have worked on a rehabilitation yard bringing injured horses back into work and am currently working on a private family hunting yard.


Key Skills

I’m competent in all aspects of day to day yard work including;


Exercise inc. Schooling on Flat and over jumps, Canter/fast work, Fittening programmes

Basic yard maintenance/ fencing/ paddock maintenance/ arena maintenance

Can drive a 3.5tonne box and would happily take further tests for larger vehicles/ towing



Strengths and Weaknesses

• What do you most enjoy about working with horses?

I enjoying working outdoors in all weathers and love learning. Working with horses I learn new things every day and spend my free time actively seeking more knowledge be it a new schooling exercise or a different approach to an old problem. I take pride in keeping a clean tidy yard and in designing care and exercise plans for each horse in my care.

• Is there anything you’d like to improve?

I always look to improve my riding any way I can and to increase my knowledge of horse care. I enjoy learning new things and discovering a new or re-discovering an old trick.

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

I am keen and competent and looking for a long term job. I have worked at several yards gaining much experience and many skills, I now wish to put everything I have learned into practice and continue my training


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

I would like to find a position where I will be able to use my initiative. I’m bright and able and I like a challenge; something to keep me thinking on my feet. I enjoy working with children, dogs and other animals. I would like a job where, while working predominantly with horses, there’s a bit of variety within my routine. I’d be happy to do odd jobs, maintenance etc.

• Do you need accommodation?

Yes – Dog friendly

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

I have a Boxer crossbreed who would need to come with me, he has grown up on yards and is good with horses, livestock and other dogs.

• Do you have any ongoing commitments?

Nothing that doesn’t fit around work

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

Nothing planned
