  1. Experience with Horses

4 years experience as a hunt groom which included; yard duties, clipping, pulling/plaiting, tacking up, bandaging, hacking, schooling, jumping, hunting, lunging, long reining, working with youngsters, handling foals, holding for vets.

1 years experience at a horse sanctuary as a groom, which involved; yard duties, holding for vets, handling nervous equines including mules, bandaging, poulticing, weigh-taping, body condition scoring.

A lifetime of horse ownership and competing a variety of horse from a young age. Obtained several BRC national championship placings at eventing and show jumping. Freelancing experience in holiday cover, caring for horses with various health needs.



Key Skills

I enjoy riding challenging horses and am confident on big, fit, strong horses which buck, rear and bolt. I am a very quiet rider and patient when schooling green horses.

I am confident in leading strong and difficult horses, including those who have not been handled or lead in months.

I’m interested in veterinary care and have 2 years voluntary experience at a small animal veterinary practice. I enjoy holding horses for vets and trotting up and am confident bandaging and poulticing.


Strengths and Weaknesses

I most enjoy working with a horse regularly and making steady but consistent progress in its schooling or other behaviours. I have experience in catching and handling difficult horses, donkeys and mules and am very patient and quiet.

I’m keen to continue to improve my ridden abilities generally and more specifically to gain more experience in backing and breaking. I am confident pulling and plaiting manes to a high standard but would like to improve my confidence in plaiting tails.



I am looking for a live-out role which would ideally allow me to continue to ride my own horse regularly.
