Experience with Horses

Having owned my own horses for most of my life, I spent my teenage years working my weekends at various event/show jumping/riding school yards. I have plenty of experience competing in all disciplines at an high unaffiliated level, and have some experience of lower level affiliated competition – however and unfortunate lack of horse power has prevented me from being able to pursue this. At 16, I began working full time at my current job – a livery/competition yard; here we have various liveries, ranging from advanced medium dressage horses, to 1.30m show jumpers and Intermediate event horses – we also have horses in to school or break and back.
With this variety of horses, I take on the responsibility of their fitness (including riding, lunging, long reining, etc.) as well as grooming at shows for these horses, along with their general daily care. I do this with the support of an apprentice.
I possess a Level 2 in Horse Care, Management and Riding; and I am keen and on track to complete my Level 3.

• Is there anything you’d like to improve?

I would like to improve my experience and knowledge of grooming at top-level sport. I would also wish to receive further training on either my own or other horses.

I am extremely enthusiastic to improve, learn, and do my job to the highest standard possible. I have a real passion for competition and strive to help my team to be the best they can be.



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

I would like to gain experience in grooming at competitions, and in preparing horses for higher level sport. I would like to gain training on my own horse.
