Experience with Horses

I’ve had experience with horses since I was 6 years old. I started working with horses in 2015 on/ off including managing the yard and lunging/ riding the horses at a family yard. I sent 2 weeks of work experience at Sharon Hunt Eventing where I looked after the horses, prepared them for competitions, tacked up for Sharon, hacked and schooled the horses, handled foals and brood mares and was taught some equine massage. I also worked for Liz and Mark Mills at The Dressage Company where I handled the 30 competition horses including stallions, I have also attended competitions for Caroline Bridge and other eventers helping prepare the horse, help warm up and undertake recovery for post-cross county. I am very competent working with horses and have built up a great deal of knowledge over the years.

As well as working with horses I have competed up to 1*/ Intermediate-Novice on my own horse which I produced from a 5 yo; I have also competed up to Elementary level dressage and 1.20 show jumping as well as experience hunting.

Alongside this, I have baby sat, thus have experience with children. I have also done a bit of house keeping/ garden work so am very versatile and pick new jobs up quickly.

Key Skills

I am very comfortable working alone as I did at the family yard or as part of a team which I did at the competition yards. I am able to plait, trim, pull manes and turnout for competitions as well as tack up/ bandage for training. I have handled brood mares, stallions and foals in the past and feel competent doing so. I am a very competent rider and have ridden a range from 14 hh connemaras to 4 yo to 17 hh eventers.

I have helped with general household jobs and gardening as well as helping with the children (picking up/ dropping off/ entertaining) and have worked with children and ponies at pony club.


Strengths and Weaknesses

• What do you most enjoy about working with horses?

Have always loved horses so have a strong passion; I love the variability of the job and really enjoy the hard work that comes alongside it.

• Is there anything you’d like to improve?

I would like to learn more skills such as clipping and gain more valuable knowledge from successful riders.

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

I am extremely hard working and motivated, I will the job done to a high standard and don’t mind going that little bit extra. I am very quick to learn and settle into a new job.


• Do you need accommodation?


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


• Do you have any ongoing commitments?

I still work for one lady but only occasionally so wouldn’t affect my new job.

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