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.

In 2019 I graduated from Chester University (Reaseheath College) with a Foundation Degree in Arts in Rural Events Management. Prior to this, in July 2017, I gained a Level 3 Extended Diploma in Equine Management from Reaseheath College.

In 2016, I was selected to work for Bob Ellis as part of his Arena team to represent Reaseheath College for the Queens 90th birthday in the Royal Windsor Horse Show. Since then I have become a regular member of his freelance team, working in the Royal Windsor Horse Show, the Liverpool International Horse Show & Bolesworth International Horse Show

Whilst in my second year at in Reaseheath I worked for Andrew Heffernan as a groom on his Event Yard in Somerford, Cheshire.

My equine experience also extends to working for Justine Armitage, British Grand Prix dressage rider and her sister Janine Pendlebury on her Lusitano Riding Centre & Stud in Penllyn during my holidays. My work included yard duties, exercising liveries and escorting rides.

During the last year of my studies in Reaseheath I worked for Bentley Equine, a newly established livery yard where I also kept my own event horse on livery.  My main achievement here was to assist in the organisation of the Open Day for the yard which was a highly prestigious event to promote the new yard and attract new customers. The day included a tour of the yard and the facilities and presentations by Geoff Billington. My other duties here included, supervising and training staff, exercising & managing the livery horses.

I am a cheerful hardworking person and have a passion for working with horses. I work well as a team but also enjoy working on my own initiative and I have always been credited for my hard work and enthusiasm.

I have worked on a number of stud yards and am experienced in handling stallions and young stock. I have a dutch warm blood who I regularly compete I have also ridden a range of liveries, young horses and  British Grand Prix Dressage horses.

I love animals and have a passion for horses, I have been riding since I could walk and working with them since I was 14 years old. I love the trust and bond between a horse & rider and the satisfaction of achievement gained through horsemanship.

Is there anything you’d like to improve?

I would like to build on my experience to date and diversify into other fields in the equine industry and also improve my management skills.
