Experience with Horses

Experienced in handling all ages of horses and ponies. Have backed 3 horses of my own with competition in mind. Experience handling in-foal mares and dealing with foaling/foals and yearlings too. Ran my own livery yard for 15 years. Worked as a Freelance groom in all types of yard including Endurance Racing, Jumping and Showing.  Ridden all types of horse/pony and weight 9 stone, though I am tall (5ft 10″)!



Key Skills

I can think on my feet, do not need supervision and can manage other people if necessary.  Sole charge is not a problem, it’s what I am used to.  I have remained open-minded over he years to all sorts of training techniques and ways of managing horses and hope I have a sympathetic practical approach which I can bring to any yard. I am used to problem horses and have the patience to deal with them.



Strengths and Weaknesses

I enjoy being outside and working with horses gives a buzz that no other occupation gives, n0 two days are ever the same even if on paper they look like they will be!  You never top learning and there are so many knowledgeable people out there these days..


Age is my one bug-bear – now in my 50’s I don’t bounce when I come off so I need to be mindful of this for my own sake and not take unnecessary risks – still love the riding though!
