Experience with Horses

I started riding at the age of 11, I progressed quickly, was then offered volunteer work as a groom looking after the riding school horses and helping in the lessons. I attended Easton and Otley College for 3 years studying equine management completing level 2 and 3. During my time at college I studied equine biology and anatomy, nutrition, horse fitness, equitation, training horses from the ground, show jumping, training horses on the flat, behavioural management, event management, competition grooming, and business management.  I completed my work experience at Pam Sly Racing yard where I handled yearlings, colts, mares and stallions. When I was there I helped with the yard duties and preparing the horses for races. Following college I started work as a groom at a livery yard, handling a variety of horses, and have brought on a very green and nervous horse and have accomplished winning a dressage league and jumping up to 90cm.
I am currently working at a family run yard at Castle Coole Enniskillen, breaking in untouched young horses, I have currently broken in 2 fully ridden and jumping up to 1 metre, and also am training and looking after a newborn foal and mother.



Key Skills

I am good at working alone and in company. I will handle any sort of horse from a yearling to a stallion as they don’t bother me and I have experience handling them. I can clip and prepare horses for shows in all disciplines. I am quick at mucking out and cleaning the yard efficiently. I am a confident rider and will ride anything put in front of me. I am good a talking to people and communicating with others. I am good at working with children of all ages.



Strengths and Weaknesses

• What do you most enjoy about working with horses?

what I enjoy most is that each day is different, each horse has their own little quirks and differences. I also enjoy the physical aspect of working with horses always on the move and outside.


• Is there anything you’d like to improve?

I would like to improve on my knowledge of working with horses in different disciplines and to learn different ways of working with them.


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

Employers should consider me as I am reliable and good with time keeping, I am open to knew ideas and to learn new ways of work.



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

To further my experience and education.

• Do you need accommodation?


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

I will be bringing 2 dogs a miniature dachshund and a very friendly Japanese Akita, also a 15.2hh Connemara Gelding who gets on which gets on with every horse and will only need turnout

• Do you have any ongoing commitments?


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