Experience with Horses

I have been around horses all of my life and have 5 years experience as a full time groom. I first worked as a groom at a busy riding school and livery yard, in which I undertook all aspects of horse care and achieved my BHS stage 3 care and BHS stage 2 riding. I also assisted with office work and the onsite competitions as required. In November 2016 I relocated to a high end livery yard of leisure and competition horses, and got promoted to senior groom in April 2019. I lead the small team to ensure our horses receive the highest possible standards of care and that the clients receive a five star service. In November 2019 I started a new role as a groom at a large stud and livery yard to learn more about stud work. I have started assisting with collections from the stallions, and have also started to compete one of the stallions in dressage.



Key Skills

I have excellent time management skills and enjoy working as part of a team, although I am also confident enough to work alone as required. I am used to handling competition horses, stallions, and youngstock,  and I work to a high standard with good attention to detail. I am efficient and competent at all day to day aspects of horse care, and can also ride and lunge as needed.



Strengths and Weaknesses

• I particularly enjoy grooming and getting to know the horses individual characters. I also find mucking out very satisfying and love seeing the horses I help to look after and their owners doing well.


• I am able to clip and plait but have not done this on a regular basis so some training in this area would be beneficial. I am a quick learner so I’m sure that I will quickly improve my speed and technique in this area. I can pull manes and trim, but have not pulled a tail before.


• I am hard working and adaptable to different situations. I have experience working with a wide variety of horses and good customer service skills for liaising with clients. I work well in a team and alone, and am able to organise and lead other staff members





• If the job is within 45 minutes of my home address (close to Boston in Lincolnshire) then I will not need accommodation, I am also happy to look at jobs further afield if they have some accommodation available
