Experience with Horses
I have extensive experience working with horses, previously as stable hand/work rider particularly with racehorses working for a well known stud and looking after horses exercising, riding out mucking out and cleaning racehorses for a well known racing trainer. I have recently been working in equine diagnostic imaging which includes prepping and handling horses in a clinical controlled environment. Working in this role sparked particular interest to which I have used my own initiative to study and learn anatomy and physiology of horses which enhanced my understanding of the diagnostics modality views in MRI, Scintigraphy and X-ray.
I have great handling skills with highly strung horses, as well as lots of horse relevant certifications such as my Hallmark standing MRI operator certificate, Level 3 First Aid at work, horse first aid and equine massage course. That said I have got vast amounts of skills in clinical areas as well as the hands on and physical horse handling prospectives. I have great people skills and have experience with working in challenging areas in clinical areas such as dealing with owners during they’re final good byes with thier horses but not limited to a day at the races and different complications that may arise. I am effective working alone and within a team to achieve high standards with targets or goals set.
Strengths and Weaknesses
• What do you most enjoy about working with horses?
I enjoy working in all areas of the equine industry to a high standard be that the less interesting jobs to more challenging and different clinical cases and the challenges they may throw at you. I strive of the outcomes of working in the equine industry be that away grooming/competing or following horses through their clinical examinations.
• Is there anything you’d like to improve?
Working more so in the racing industry and hospital environment I would like to brush up on my competing and general horse ridding knowledge. That said I am all for learning and always willing to take on new challenges and am a strong believer that you never stop learning and would give my all to try champion new areas.
• Why should employers consider you above any other job seeker?
Having lots of equine experience in many areas, I feel with my ‘hands on skills’ working with highly strung horses and my developed clinical knowledge; I believe I would be a great asset to any equine role be that in a more senior role looking after horses and in turn working closely with vets or taking sole charge of the position and utilising the valuable range of skills at my disposal.
