Experience with Horses

My first job from leaving school was a groom at a riding school and livery yard. I worked her for 10 years and working my way tho the ranks to head girl and riding instructor, passing my stage two and part of my ptt.

I felt like I needed to gain more experience and found a job as a carriage groom. This job is working on weddings, funerals and events all over the country. These horses need to be turn out to the highest of standards. Most of these horses are stallions and require a confident handler.

I’m my spare time I like to ride and compete my own horses. I’ve BE up to be100 getting to the regional finials and also tried my hand at BS and BD getting a few firsts at prelim and novice.



Key Skills

I believe in leading by example and wouldn’t expect anyone to do a job I wouldn’t. I’m a great team player but will happily work alone if needed. I’m confident handling stallions and fit horses.

In my riding I’m quite competitive and always want to learn whether it be a hairy cob or a warmblood.

I’m trustworthy and honest and good at communicating and understanding mine and others strengths and weaknesses and showing off those strengths.



Strengths and Weaknesses

• What do you most enjoy about working with horses?

I love the challenge of riding or teaching different horses and see or feeling them go well. As they can be so different.


• Is there anything you’d like to improve?

I always want to improve whether that be my riding, or training. I think we should never stop learning.


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

I’m very hands on and always want to do my best. I’ve gain a lot of experience in my job roles. My employers were completely different and I think that has helped with my understanding between the old horseman to the modern world.



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

I’m looking for a career where I can progress and develop my riding.


• Do you need accommodation?



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



• Do you have any ongoing commitments?



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

Yes. From August the 18th til 29th 2019
