Experience with Horses

In my most recent role I was the sole groom of 9 showjumping horses and 4 miniature ponies. Here I completed all yard duties to a very high standard, including washing and brushing off horses after being worked and cleaning tack daily. Responsibilities also included preparing for shows, bathing horses, packing the lorry etc., and going away to shows as the sole groom for up to 7 horses, competing up to 1.40m. I also worked hard on my riding skills in this position, exercising livery horses in between my grooming responsibilities. I learned a lot about looking after horses by competing regularly in this role and really enjoyed watching my hard work pay off in the ring.

I have also previously worked at a dressage orientated livery yard where I had to complete all yard duties to a high standard as well as exercise the liveries. Here I handled a variety of different horses including youngsters and fit competition horses. I have also worked at an RDA centre with a few nationally and internationally successful para-dressage riders.


I would like to work hard in a role where I would learn a lot and gain more experience. I am super eager to learn as much as I can in all aspects of the industry both in and out of the saddle.

I would need accommodation if the role wasn’t local to Hertfordshire.
