Experience with Horses

- BSc (Hons) in Equine Therapy and Rehabilitation, Bishop Burton – Final year being completed.
Castle Leslie Equestrian Centre (May 2016- 2018): I started working at the Equestrian Centre through completing my FdSc degree and having to complete a module in work placement. This Equestrian Centre was my choice for the 11-week work placement. After successfully completing my work placement I got offered a position to work as a full-time groom at the Equestrian Centre, needless to say this was a big achievement for me as it showed how passionate and hard-working I was in completing my work placement to then be offered a full time position. Work duties included but were not limited to; mucking & skipping out, haying, doing field & walker runs, tacking up and getting horses ready for lessons & hacks, communicating with customers, helping out in lessons and carriage rides and going as back up in hacks and many more day to day duties on the yard. There was approximately 40 horses (a mixture of cross breeds, cobs, Irish sport horses and ponies) within the centre, therefore, it was constantly a busy working environment with taking care of that many horses, and making sure they were all ready and presentable for lessons and hacks with clients.
Equine Lodge Stables (2015): Through summer 2015, before going to study the FdSc degree in Equine Management I decided that I need to improve my Equine skills and went to work at a local stables. There I got to complete daily yard duties such as mucking out in the mornings, get the horses and ponies ready for riding classes, assist with riding classes, feed horses, clean tack and many more activities. It helped me get a better understanding of what the Equine world is going to be like. I learned many new things and improved my skills to work around horses
I have excellent communication skills and am never put off by unfamiliar situations. I can speak fluent English and Lithuanian and have A-level Spanish qualification. My language skills help me to communicate to a wider variety of people as well as developed my understanding of different cultures. I have basic skills of using a computer and a high competency in SPSS, Microsoft Office, Excel and Publisher applications. I have a lot of experience of working on my own as well as part of a team and I can adapt quickly to new environments and situations. I also have several equine management skills where I can deal with taking care of horses and complete any daily duties that are required around them. I am well able to work in a fast-paced environment. Studying in Equine Therapy and Rehabilitation has equipped me with several new skills around a different area in the equine industry. I am capable of operating equipment such as the solarium, spa and water treadmill. I am also able to carry out stretches, some massage techniques, assess horse movement and many more tasks. Both the FdSc and BSc (Hons) degrees have thought me a lot of scientific knowledge about horses, this includes but is not limited to; exercise physiology, nutrition, injuries, disease, research, management, behaviour and therapeutic and rehabilitation usage.
Strengths and Weaknesses
I am open to learning many new skills that I may need to improve or not yet have. I am always willing to take part in different work activities to up my skills. Having received a job at the end of my placement proves that I am hard-working and carry out any duties to top standard.
I am eager to learn new things, therefore, I will never say no to new qualifications. I am also planning on carrying out a massage course to learn more Equine therapeutic techniques.
By completing the two degrees, my knowledge within the equine sector is very broad. The FdSc degree has thought me a lot from the practical side, with having the opportunity to handle race horses, take part in breeding, foal handling and yearling prep while also taking care of the equitation horses the BSc (hons) has thought me a lot scientific knowledge and how to apply that to the industry and also the practical side of the therapy and rehabilitation sector of the industry.
I am flexible and can move anywhere for the right job.
• I would wish to take my practical and theoretical knowledge of Equine Therapy and Rehabilitation and apply that on a day to day basis within my job role.
