Experience with Horses

I grew up in an equestrian family, eventually taking up competitive riding (namely A&P shows and showing) and instructing.

In 2011, I assisted with the startup of Whangamata Pony Club where I gave riding and horse care lessons, and facilitated children’s camps and competitions.


Key Skills

I consider myself to be a calm, friendly, reliable and thoughtful person, am a fast learner and strive to do my best in all areas. My reliability and high level of initiative are my most valuable qualities, and I thrive in both independent and team environments.

I am competent with general yard duties, such as clipping, plaiting, trimming, feeding, turning out for shows, paddock maintenance, mucking out etc. I am a competent rider, especially with flatwork and schooling. I have a knack for organisation and planning. I enjoy creating programmes and schedules.


Strengths and Weaknesses

• What do you most enjoy about working with horses?

I love being outdoors, caring for and connecting with horses, and working as part of a team.


• Is there anything you’d like to improve?

I would like to improve my equine skills in all fields. My knowledge is based upon my experiences owning and competing horses in New Zealand. I would love to learn more about how things are done in the UK.

And as all riders should, I would most of all like to improve my riding, particularly schooling and jumping. My primary focus as a teen was dressage and showing, but I would now like to take that knowledge across to jumping and develop my skills in Show Hunter and Cross Country, as well as Western disciplines.


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

I am a highly adaptable, reliable and efficient self-starter. I am a keen learner and work fantastically, in both independent and team environments.


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

I would like to gain more experience in the equine sector. I am ideally looking for a position that allows me to upskill in the areas of youngstock, Cross Country or Western riding and training.
