Experience with Horses

I have been brought up around horses my entire life. From the age of 7 I volunteered at a riding school helping tack/untack, muck out, bed up and groom the horses until I got my first pony. I began competing at local shows in showing classes, moving on to working Hunter and showjumping when I realised my passion was more for jumping. After outgrowing him I went in to school and back youngsters for a friend to sell on. At 14 I got my first long term horse who had many behavioural issues. I had to re-break and re-school her with the help of my mum. 2 years later I started competing in low level dressage and jumping always being in the top three. I now have my own horse, a 4 year old ex racer who is currently in rehabilitation due to health issues I wasn’t told about. Before she got ill I fully broke her on my own and began producing her. I am now freelance riding/exercising difficult horses and young horses locally.

I did spend a year doing horse management at Bishop Burton before deciding I wanted to be working rather than in college. Whilst there I did 2 weeks work experience at Amy Woodhead’s yard in Immingham helping with her dressage horses.


Key Skills

I can work alone or in a team however have always been left to my own devices so naturally find it more enjoyable in a team environment. I have recently been improving my clipping skills. I love plaiting manes however not as great with tails so I tend to keep them pulled. I do have experience with stallions and handle one on a regular basis currently. I also regularly ride/handle young horses; owning one myself. I find I am quite calm and gentle with the horses after always been taught to work quietly and calmly around them.


Strengths and Weaknesses

• What do you most enjoy about working with horses?

I enjoy watching them progress, I love the reward that comes with training them and looking after them to make them an overall better horse.

• Is there anything you’d like to improve?

I would like to improve my experience and knowledge as I believe you can never stop learning.

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

I am hardworking, willing to work on my own or in a team and wanting to learn. I understand that everyone has their own ways of working with horses and would love to expand my knowledge on different methods to improve my own work with horses.


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

I would like to be a groom and help at shows if possible. I would like a riding position to expand my riding skills however it’s not essential.

• Do you need accommodation?


• Do you have any special requirements for any animals you wish to bring with you?

I would like to bring my horse but not essential

• Do you have any ongoing commitments?


• Do you have any holidays booked that an employer needs to know of?
