Strengths and Weaknesses

• What do you most enjoy about working with horses?

I mostly enjoy the reward benefits that comes with working with horses such as progress and the improvement in the animals the more you work with them. I have loved horses since a very young age, therefore ‘working’ with horses has never been tedious for me and has always been an enjoyable job to wake up too. I enjoy getting to know each horse as an individual and no two days are the same in the industry.


• Is there anything you’d like to improve?

Id like to improve my confidence in team leading and team management skills. In previous jobs I have always worked in a team, yet took orders from the team leader, I would like to improve my confidence in this role.



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

I believe my passion and love for the industry would make me an ideal candidate above others as I enjoy going the extra mile and put extra effort in for something I enjoy. Aside that, I believe I am a hardworking individual who isn’t shy to get stuck in and do the jobs that some people don’t enjoy!




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

I would like to maintain a career in the equine industry and potentially progress if there is room too.


• Do you need accommodation?



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

Potentially 1 horse.


• Do you have any ongoing commitments?



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

New Years Eve and 4-8th May 2020.
