These roles included taking bookings, dealing with phone calls and emails. organizing staff and daily routines. riding a wide range of horses, managing staff , helping clients and backing young horses.

I have also worked with competition horses and have been responsible for packing the lorry, tacking up at shows, walking and washing horses off.
