Experience with Horses

I am a hardworking, motivated, loyal and enthusiastic individual with great attention to detail. I am capable of working under pressure. I am driven, focused and self-motivated with a “can do” attitude. I am happy working alone or as part of a team and pick things up quickly and efficiently

I have always enjoyed working for a variety of different clients either as a Competition Groom , Yard Groom/manager , House sitter , Riding coach/trainer, dog walker,  etc  I am now keen to secure a permanent role, offering more structured, full time working hours, that enable me to spend more time with my animals and fulfilling my interests.

I am reliable, punctual, and motivated. I would be happy to re-locate for the right position, however this would need to accommodate my small dog and two horses
