Experience with Horses

I have experience with horses from taking my son to riding lessons and being around a yard environment in a teaching setting. I also have experience from volunteer work I carry out at an RDA setting near me. Plus I have helped to provide daily care for ponies/horses where I have mucked our stables, poo picked fields, carried out basic grooming and feeding requirements. I’m happy to provide freelance services or undertake a location specific role.

I have recently completed 2 courses in Horse Care and Stable Management and Equine Psychology.

Key Skills

I’m happy to work either alone or as part of a team as long as there is clear direction as to what is required from all team members.  I have a particular interest in grooming and care of the horses in order to make them the best horse that they can be.  I would like to expand my grooming related skills and I’m happy to gain any experience in this area of equine care.

I have some first aid training and many years experience of working in a customer service environment.  I also have experience of running my own business and I’m educated to degree level; plus have a full, clean driving license.

Strengths and Weaknesses

• What do you most enjoy about working with horses?

Everything! There is nothing about working within an equine environment that I don’t like.

• Is there anything you’d like to improve?

As a relative novice I’m keen to improve on all areas but as already mentioned my specific area of interest is grooming and maintenance.

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

I am extremely committed to gaining and expanding my skills and wish to make this a long term career pathway.  I am flexible in hours that I can work and locations and have my own transportation.


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

Despite having a degree in Marketing I’m looking at a more practical, hands on role. However I am flexible and would consider most opportunities presented to me.  I am aware that I would gain the best experience from starting at the bottom and moving up the ladder and I’m definitely happy to commit to training and reading associated with the career parhway.

• Do you need accommodation?

This would depend on whether I was relocating.

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

2 cats

• Do you have any ongoing commitments?


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

Yes, July 26 for 1 week.
