Experience with Horses
My experience with horses goes back almost 20 years. At the age of 7, I started getting regular lessons, and at the age of 11 I started competing regularly. I was competing in show-jumping but I also found great pleasure in being a show-groom for more senior riders.
Due to personal circumstances, I took a long break from horse-riding, however I have devoted the past months volunteering on stables across Europe, to get myself back on track.
I enjoy working with young horses as much as I do with more experienced horses.
I am very happy to use my own initiative and I like to make use of my time in an effective manner. I am confident in plaiting, clipping and turning out for shows and I like to keep things clean and tidy. I am a big fan of flat-work and handling young-stock is not an issue!
Non-equine skills include working with adults with learning disabilities (including specialist training qualifications), proficient in IT systems and business administration.
Strengths and Weaknesses
• What do you most enjoy about working with horses?
I enjoy the feeling of being able to communicate without using a language. The cooperation between human and animal is so wonderful and I always want to ensure the horses I’m working with happy and comfortable.
• Is there anything you’d like to improve?
I would need to improve my knowledge on equine feed and health.
• Why should employers consider you above any other job seeker?
I am confident I would make a great asset to a team, because I am knowledgeable and hard-working. My interest lies in the horses’ welfare and I want to ensure this contemporaneously.
• What would you like to do or gain in your next job?
In my next job, I would like to either act as a show-groom or a groom/rider in a show-jumping facility. Ideally, there would be an element in working with young horses too.
• Do you need accommodation?
Yes – a live-in position would be required.
• Do you have any special requirements for any animals you wish to bring with you?
I would like to bring my cat.
• Do you have any ongoing commitments?
• Do you have any holidays booked that an employer needs to know of?
