Experience with Horses

I have worked on yards for 3+years and have been riding for 12 years. I have been involved in riding and ground work with a range of horses and involved in all aspects of yard duties from mucking out to cleaning tack and leading horses in lessons. I am comfortable around both small and large horses with different temperaments.

I am an adaptable and responsible person seeking a position which will develop my knowledge and skills. Overall, I am reliable, hardworking and eager to learn.


Key skills

I am particularly good at mucking out stables to a high standard but in a timely manner. I am both good at working alone and with others. I am also good at organising, whether that be tasks needing to be completed or appointments.

I am used to brushing horses, putting on correct blankets and rugs, tacking up, cleaning tack, feeding,
cleaning the yard, leading in lessons, exercising horses and more. I have used my initiative to complete tasks and find more work that needs to be completed. I can follow directions and complete my tasks to the highest standard,

Strengths and Weaknesses

• What do you most enjoy about working with horses?

I enjoy how not everyday is the same, and how each horse has their own personality and taking the time to get to know each of them

• Is there anything you’d like to improve?

I would like to improve my plating, handling young stock and just overall my knowledge of the industry

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

I am willing to learn and take on any task I am asked to with an open mind.



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

I would love to build a relationship with those I work with, and gain more knowledge of a different side to the equine business

• Do you need accommodation?

Yes- if it is out of the way or far away from North Shields and not east to get to via public transport.

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


• Do you have any ongoing commitments?

I am in a job at the minute, so would need about 2 weeks notice

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