Experience with Horses

Outline your experience with horses here/the scope of your freelance services. If you’re looking for a non-equine or non- yard-based job please use this space to describe your experience skills/abilities and adapt the questions to suit your line of work.

I started riding at age 3, spent many years of my life on / off riding. I had my own pony for 25 years but sadly lost him last year at the ripe old age of 38! After leaving school I worked in a kennels & cattery which housed rescue animals for the RSPCA. In 2007 I studied a National Diploma in Animal Management for 2 years, later studying animal behaviour & psychology. At 20 I went to study at the National Stud & completed an apprenticeship in racehorse care & breeding. I then worked on top studs around the world including Cheveley Park Stud & Coolmore. As you can see most of my working career has been spent in the animal care industry, mainly focusing around horses. I currently work in a veterinary practice.


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 am very capable of working independently or as part of a team. Given my years of experience I have a variety of skills & knowledge in both horse & animal care.


Strengths and Weaknesses

• What do you most enjoy about working with horses?

No 2 days are the same. I love that they all have their own characters & you have to build a bond with each of them. 

• Is there anything you’d like to improve?

My riding, I have been out of the saddle for a few years but I would embrace the challenge of getting back into it! 

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

I am extremely hardworking & caring. Pretty happy go lucky & will go above what is asked of me.


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

Animal welfare is a top priority for me & the reason I have left previous employments is down to this not being a top priority. I would like to work somewhere who has similar values. 

• Do you need accommodation?

Depending on location but I am happy to live away from home. 

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


• Do you have any ongoing commitments?


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