Experience with Horses

I have 18 years of personal experience volunteering in a variety of disciplines and yards. I have worked with dressage horses, stallions, foals, yearlings, racers, ex-racers, youngsters etc. I volunteered for 3 years with the Riding for the Disabled Association. I have had the privilege of attending several bespoke military training courses at RAC MSC Bovington and DATR Melton Mowbury. I have ridden and owned several ex-racehorses and successfully retrained and rehabilitated these horses. I am an efficient, hard-working, self-disciplined ex-army servicewoman, with years of experience of equine care and management.



Key Skills

I am an efficient, hard-working individual, I am prompt and punctual in all tasks I complete. I work well both on my own as part of a team and extremely driven to achieve any tasks or goals set to the highest possibility standard. I learn new skills exceptionally quickly and adapt to routine effectively. I undertake all tasks given to me with planning and fore-thought, however I am adaptable and flexible under stress and pressure.



Strengths and Weaknesses

I thoroughly enjoy the challenge and opportunity working in the equine industry presents. It has been my passion since I was 3 years old, and I am extremely excited as the prospect of further developing myself professionally upon leaving the military. I am competent in the following areas;

  • Lunging
  • Mucking Out
  • Riding
  • Hacking out
  • Gallops
  • Long-reining
  • Handling young stock
  • Grooming
  • Basic equine and human first aid

I would like to improve my ability to clip and plait.

I believe I am an excellent candidate for employment, through my sheer drive and determination. I am an extremely flexible individual, who can can adapt and change my plan or timeline, under even the most stressful situations. I have a strong ability to think of my feet, assess and take control of situations where it is necessary. I have a fantastic work ethic, and I am not afraid to get my hands dirty, listen to people with more experience and better myself as far as I possibly can.



I can achieve either a live in or live out position, however if it is live in I would require for my partner to be accommodated (with 1 months notice to be given on current property) and I would also require our two cats to be accommodated.

I am also getting married on the 18th June 2021, therefore I would require any future employers to be as accommodating as possible to support this, as I am getting married in Scotland.
