Experience with Horses

I have been riding for 14 years.  Within these 14 years I have ridden a variety of different horses with varying temperaments.  Due to this, I can easily adapt to  different horses in order to bring out the best of them.  I have also experience in bringing on young horses as well as backing and breaking.  I have worked and volunteered in a variety of yards, such as rehabilitation and rescue centres, livery and competition yards, riding schools and private yards.  I also attended CAFRE in Enniskillen to complete a Level Three Extended Diploma in Horse Management and and since completed a degree in Equine Behavioural Science at Writtle University College.  Both of these courses have taught me valuable knowledge, however I am always willing to learn and further my knowledge.  I also have experience in competition as I used to compete my own horse on a weekly basis in the showjumping season and I have scribed for dressage judges at the competition yard where I used to work.  I have helped in the running of competitions and have groomed for riders for both dressage and showjumping.

Strengths and Weaknesses

• What do you most enjoy about working with horses?

It’s such as rewarding job.  There’s nothing better than seeing a horse recover from an injury through rehabilitation, observe a foal growing up, or seeing a horse going out and doing well competitively.

• Is there anything you’d like to improve?

My clipping skills.  I can do basic clips when assisted but would love to improve this skill in the future.

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

I am a very reliable and hardworking person.  I keep working until the task is completed.  I work very well as part of a team or alone and can take sole charge if required.  I am very eager to learn new skills and continue to develop existing skills.


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

I would love to further my knowledge and gain experience in different areas of the equine industry.

• Do you need accommodation?

If a job is located further than approximately 20 miles outside of Belfast, yes.

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


• Do you have any ongoing commitments?


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

No – however, I am graduating university but the graduation date has been pushed back indefinitely due to covid-19 but plenty of notice will be given when a new date has been confirmed.
