Experience with Horses:

I have decades of experience with horses, having started to ride from the age of 5 and having owned my own from the age of 7.  I come from a non-horsey background, so am basically self-taught, with the help of many excellent publications!!

I have backed horses, bred my own, ridden all sorts of problem horses and generally live and breathe them!!  At present I own 2 sports horses.  I backed both myself.  I train them and devise their nutrition and fitness plans.

I am a qualified Assessor of Equine Apprentices and have my own L3 Diploma in Horse Care & Riding.  I am able to deal with equine emergency 1st aid.  I regularly compete dressage, show jumping and eventing.

I am able to travel horses long distances, indeed, I have driven my own horse back from SW France and dealt with all the necessary paperwork and logistics that involves.



Self-motivated and hard-working

Experience of working with and handling a wide
range of equines, including brood-mares
and youngstock

Smart, presentable appearance

Good organisational and prioritisation skills



I am fit and able-bodied.  I have patience and empathy.  I am aware that I can still learn and constantly keep abreast with the latest developments and studies in the equine world, keeping an open mind with regards to new ways of doing things.
