Experience with Horses

I have been around horses since the age of 2. I learnt to ride at my local riding school and then went on to loaning and riding other people’s horses. I have owned my own horses, who I have schooled and worked with over the years. I spent some time living in Qatar where I had the opportunity to ride one of the Arabs at the racecourse. When I returned to the UK, I finished my Business Diploma and went on to study the Extended Diploma in Horse Management at Reaseheath College. I also completed my BHS Stage 1 exam. I ran my own business for a while providing a mobile groom service, but later decided to go into full time employment. In 2017 I purchased a shire x mare from auction who I schooled and then later successfully competed locally. I sold my mare last year and purchased a rising 3 year old Section A colt who I now show inhand. I have previously worked for Pony Patch (children’s pony rides and parties), Black Feathers (Horse drawn carriages), a groom at a riding school and as a Head Groom at a livery yard near Sheffield.

Key Skills

I can clip, trim and turn out to a high standard. I am confident working alone or with others. I can lead a team and ensure work is completed efficiently. I am a confident handler with stallions and young horses.

I have excellent IT and organizational skills.

I am also confident looking after other domestic animals.


Strengths and Weaknesses

• What do you most enjoy about working with horses?

I love working in the outdoors. I enjoy seeing a horses progress and feel accomplished when I have reached my goals. I am very passionate about working with horses and feel that I would like to continue my career working with them.

• Is there anything you’d like to improve?

I’d like to improve my plaiting and riding skills.

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

I would like to further all of my knowledge and skills.

Accommodation would be needed if the job is not fairly local.

I have a well behaved and friendly Cocker Spaniel.
