Key Skills

What are you particularly good at? For example: working alone, working with others, clipping, plaiting, turning out for shows, handling stallions, handling/riding young horses, non-equine skills etc

I’m extremely good at seeing little jobs and getting on with them. I have an eye for detail and many would describe me as a perfectionist! I have always been good at working efficiently and prioritising tasks thanks to skills picked up whilst on placement as a student physiotherapist and working as part of a large team on a busy livery yard. I have worked with a mixture of young fit competition (predominantly eventers) horses, liverys and worked on the ground at a race yard so more than when capable handling fit competition horses. I have lots of experience plaiting for shows and hunting having worked for an eventer and hunted myself for a number of years. I work well as part of a team but also work well independently and quickly adapt to the environment I’m placed into.


Strengths and Weaknesses

• What do you most enjoy about working with horses?

I like how rewarding it can be and the room there is for career development.

• Is there anything you’d like to improve?

Predominantly my riding, although I can stick to anything I am not the most technical rider due to lack of lessons and constructive criticism.

• Why should employers consider you above any other job seeker?

I’m extremely good at adapting to my workplace. I have lots of experience in various different roles both equestrian and non-equestrian related and can therefore usually turn my hand to anything, because of this, I also learn very fast! I have always worked above and beyond for my employers, having been in employment in various part time jobs since the age of 11 I am no stranger to hard work and I take pride in everything I do. I have impeccable communication skills, as part of a big family it’s vital we work together and communicate in order to keep the house running. The same applies to teams I have worked on within the hospital, communication and teamwork, as well as intuition, are vital skills to have when working busy jobs in high-pressure situations. I feel I have been able to hone these skills over the last few years to become a well-rounded individual who will work hard to achieve goals and tasks set to me.


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

I would like to gain experience predominantly, I’m always looking for opportunities to increase my knowledge base and understanding of how the equestrian industry functions as a whole. I’m predominantly looking for a position as a groom/exercise rider in any discipline.

• Do you need accommodation?

No if within 30 minute drive of LE67, yes if further.

• Do you have any special requirements for any animals you wish to bring with you?


• Do you have any ongoing commitments?

Yes, I start back at university at the end of September

• Do you have any holidays booked that an employer needs to know of?
