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.

I have worked as a groom for many years now, I enjoyed my time the most as stud groom with the old Berkshire’s hunt.

I also worked for a few event rider and got to travel a lot, and was lucky to ride at the time some very good. 3*and 4* horses.

I did a short time in polo, but I did realise very early on it was not for me.

I have done a few events on a couple of young horses, also shown at county level on my show cob.

i take pride in the way that my horses look when turned out, and always do my best I can  buy them when in my care,


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


I would like to think I can cover most aspects of horse care, from clipping to riding, stable management, handling.

i have worked alone and also had under-grooms, I like high standards and also expect the same from my staff

Strengths and Weaknesses

• What do you most enjoy about working with horses?

I enjoy the bound you build with each horse, but we also have to remember each horse is a different person, and some need treating with extra care, taking your time to gain there trust.

• Is there anything you’d like to improve?

My flat-work, dressage is enjoyable to watch but would like to learn more.

I  can ride the flat up to a novice test.

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

I believe when working with horses, they come first.  I feel many of the younger grooms don’t understand this. I’m old school groom.


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

Appreciation, this seems to have been lost by many employee’s over the years.

as a groom I will give everything I have to make sure there horses are cared for.

• Do you need accommodation?

Yes, I think when working with hunt/ event horses, you should be on hand should something go wrong, and late night checks should be done.

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

My small but friendly dog and a few chickens.


• Do you have any ongoing commitments?


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