Experience with Horses

I have been around horses since I was 5 or 6 years old, competing locally in showjumping competitions and pony club. I got into racing age 16 and spent a summer as a student at Richard Brabazon’s pre-training yard on the Curragh, Kildare in 2019. Here I worked as part of a small team to care for and exercise a yard of young racehorses and horses returning to training from injury. Attended Cafre college 2018-2020 where I completed a Level 3 in Horse Management (I am currently waiting on my final exam results from this course, however I have been predicted a Distinction). Here I got the chance to ride the college’s p2p horses. I also was able to get some experience working with foals and broodmares, however I would love to gain more experience in this area.


Key Skills

I am able to work well both in a team environment and on my own. I can work off of my own initiative but I am also able to take instructions when they are given. I can turn horses out for competition/racing to a good standard and plait well. I have a particular interest in young horses and enjoy working with them,  even the slightly more challenging ones! I am reliable, punctual and eager to learn.


Strengths and Weaknesses

• I am self motivated, I enjoy the challenge that comes with working with horses, especially breakers, and seeing the end result of hard work that has paid off. I am very patient, and I’m able to adapt when things don’t go to plan. I work well under pressure, and I’m able to stay calm in tricky situations. I occasionally took sole charge at Richard Brabazon’s in the evenings.


• I would love to learn more and gain more experience, whether that be working with foals, yearling prep, swimming horses, etc. I have just turned 18 and finished college so I do not have a huge amount of experience, however I will turn my hand to anything and I’m really eager to learn.


I am returning to Richard Brabazon’s pre-training yard in October, so I am currently only looking for a temporary position.
