Experience with Horses

I have been around horses on and off since I was 8 years old, in the last 4 years I have owned my own. I have a Connemara gelding that I have had to rehabilitate from lameness issues and a I have a 4 year old highland pony which I backed and I am schooling myself. I have worked on two different equine yards one of which was a private yard and the other was a completion yard/livery yard. I have also helped a friend school and look after some of the top ponies in the country that compete at HOYS. I have a level 2 equine care and riding qualification at distinction* grade.



Key skills

 I am very good at handling different types of horses from timid to extremely highly strung, I am calm and confident with them and always take my time to ensure the horse is never stressed. I am a competent rider and will give anything a try. I can work alone or within a team, i can plait and clip, turn out for shows. 



Strengths and Weaknesses

• What do you most enjoy about working with horses? I Enjoy working with horses because they are my passion and I really connect with them.


• Is there anything you’d like to improve? I would like to improve on my riding skills and learn knee techniques.


• Why should employers consider you above any other job seeker? Employers should consider me because I’m a hard worker and if I get asked to do a job I’ll make sure I get the job done professionally and it will get done properly even if I have to stay longer than my working hours to make sure everything is how it should be, I don’t leave a job half done. I am reliable and I will do anything to make sure the horses are cared for as if they are my own.



• What would you like to do or gain in your next job? I would like to gain more riding experience and show opportunities within the equine industry and to learn as much knowledge as possible.


• Do you need accommodation? No I have my own.


• Do you have any special requirements for any animals you wish to bring with you?  No they all live with me.


• Do you have any ongoing commitments?

I do have 2 horses of my own to look after.
