Strengths and Weaknesses

Horses have been a passion of mine since I was a young girl. I have been very fortunate to grow up with horses, and since I have been blessed with a long and enjoyable career, gaining some invaluable experiences along the way.

You will find me fully committed to attaining the very highest standards of horse care, and doing my very best to enable the team to achieve their equine goals.

I am competent at ground work and schooling on the flat, having been trained up to PSG level dressage. However I am not a jumper….. I’m terrible at seeing a stride coming into a fence……..

I have my class 2 HGV licence, and feel 100% confident driving lorries, however I have limited experience at driving anything bigger than a 7.5t lorry and no experience of utilising Tacos. this said I am a very fast learner and don’t foresee this to be an issue long term.

You will find me to be a very organised, well-spoken, energetic, confident, and personable. I pay great attention to detail, am a quick study and very adaptable, the type of person on whom your customers and team members can rely on.


I am now looking for a new challenging role, either riding or non riding.

I would prefer accommodation, however I am happy to source my own accommodation locally. I do have a dog and a horse, which will move to a new position with me.
