Experience with Horses

Completed 14 week residential course at the British Racing school in Newmarket in February 2014. From there I was a stable lad/work rider in Newmarket before heading to Deauville to work ride for 3 months.

For the past 3 years I have been a Pre Trainer in Bahrain, on the royal Safra stud working for the royal family. This position has been a managerial role. I am in charge of 10 members of staff, with 30-35 yearling thoroughbreds each season.

I have been overseeing all daily duties including but not limited to – individual horse feeding programmes, exercising programmes, liaising with vets and farriers, staff disputes and holidays.


Key Skills

I enjoy working alone or as part of a team. Confident in all duties related to the care and exercise of horses. I have great initiative and able to solve problems well.

Prior to my work with horses I was a landscape gardener, so I am happy to do all aspects of grounds keeping and minor maintenance work.

I have been an active volunteer with animals, so I feel confident in carrying out help/work with other species of animals and habitats.



Strengths and Weaknesses

I enjoy working with horses a lot, as every horse (and animal) have a unique character. You are able to build strong relationships with each and every individual and both teach and learn as you both progress.

As far as improvement and personal development, I would like to learn more about the general grounds and housing associated with horses and other animals. For example, what goes into planning a yard?

I feel my experiences over these last 3 years working in the Middle East have helped me grow as a horseman and manager. I have learnt people management skills. The constant change in horses each year has opened me up to varying temperaments and behaviours of young horses.

My one weakness is my riding. I took a fall in France and have not been riding much since. I can ride a hack horse or do minimal exercise, however a full time riding position just wouldn’t be possible for me.



For my next job, I would like to stay in a higher position (managerial) and hope to keep progressing. I am very business minded so would  I would like to keep learning all the ins and outs to horses and running a successful and happy yard.

I have a family consisting of my Wife, (almost) 2 year old daughter and 4 dogs. Should this be too much for onsite accommodation, I would be happy to look into renting near by.

I would be moving back to the UK with 4 dogs and 1 cat. I have no special requirements regarding this, however, a dog friendly work environment would be beneficial.

I am currently employed here in Bahrain. So a time scale of 4-6 weeks to hand my notice in and prepare to travel back would be sufficient.

No holidays or other commitments.
