Experience with Horses

Outline your experience with horses here/the scope of your freelance services. If you’re looking for a non-equine or non- yard-based job please use this space to describe your experience skills/abilities and adapt the questions to suit your line of work.

Following studies in equine, I gained experience in a couple of racing yards doing general yard duties and exercising race horses. I then worked as a groom at a livery yard and also tended live stock.  I had always wanted to travel and when offered the chance of helping at riding school in Ireland, I took it, before then travelling to Australia for over a year working on a stud, cattle and farm stations, where I became involved in stock work on horseback, sheep mustering, foal handling, breaking in young and semi-wild horses, plus all aspects of yard work.  On return to the UK I worked with Oliver Townend which was a helpful experience before finding a permanent position at Kyle Roddy’s as a yard hand and groom.  I then travelled to Vilamoura with Daniel Moseley before working at a show jumping yard in Surrey.  Whilst I felt I had developed many skills, I wanted to improve my riding and for the last two years have self-funded a placement with Lucinda Fredericks which has been absolutely great.

Key Skills

What are you particularly good at? For example: working alone, working with others, clipping, plaiting, turning out for shows, handling stallions, handling/riding young horses, non-equine skills etc

Turning out for shows to a high standard.  Working with young stock. Working well with others and being a team player.  Turning my hand to anything that will keep the yard working efficiently i.e. maintenance.

Strengths and Weaknesses

• What do you most enjoy about working with horses?

I love working with horses and feel fortunate to have a career which has been enjoyable and challenging. My working experiences have been varied and each time I have gained in terms of developing my skills and abilities. I have particularly enjoyed being part of competitions, ensuring horses are ready/turned around, and taking pride when all return home with no issues.  I like the fact that each day is different and it is rewarding working with such intelligent animals.

• Is there anything you’d like to improve?


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

I am punctual, efficient, reliable and use initiative.  I also have a positive outlook on life and a good sense of humour.


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

I am now seeking a position which brings together my past experiences as well as offers new challenges. A place where I am able to work hard and continue to learn.  I have been lucky to have met some great colleagues over the years and welcome the chance to work as part of a team. I have enjoyed my travels which has really developed my skills but am now looking to find a position where I can settle in the long term.

• 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?
