Experience with Horses

I am an enthusiastic individual who approaches tasks and new challenges with commitment and energy. I am capable of working well to support a team, or able to use initiative to work alone and problem solve.

I have a friendly approachable personality, am reliable and able to prioritise work schedule. Through previous employment I have gained transferable skills including customer service, liaising with clients, customers and supplies to maintain professional relationships.

I have 6 years experience working with a variety of horses and clients to support with general exercise, braking, ground work, lessons and providing full livery – meeting both the needs and requirements of horse and owner. I am flexible, patient and respectful of wishes. Whilst being able to offer advice and support.

Working within the tack shop I have gained knowledge of a variety of feeds and supplements to advise customers in relation to nutritional requirements + benefits to support conditions/ hormonal needs and general extra support to the horse/pony.

My current role hard/livery supervisor involves riding, lunging horses and ponies. I have been bringing a few horses on as well as braking three horses in the last year. I have brought many of horses back into work from injuries, laminitis or that have been turned away etc. I have also rode many of horses that are already schooled from horses knowing the basics to 4* event horses. I have experience with all types of horses that been calm and easy to strong and powerful horses. Mates and foals to dominant stallions.

I have loads of experience of turning horses out to an amazing standard. Including bathing, trimming and pulling. Bandaging and racking up and also untacking. I have turned horses out to an amazing standard for both completions and to be sold and seen by clients viewing horses for sale.

I have experience of groom role/rider on other yards, having to stay at home and look after the yard along with going away and assisting at competitions. I have had quite a bit experience with first aid with horses that been my own horses injuries, liveries horses or previous yards horses. From little cuts to huge gashes, laminitis, colic, and foaling.

I currently have a 16/16.1 coloured mare of my own that Im bringing on and would love to see where I could go with her. My ambitions are to event and work through the levels. I am a tried and will give anything a go and work hard towards the things I want to achieve. Everything I do I always make sure they are done at the highest of standards and very professional.

Id like to improve a few skills as in clipping and pulling. I would also like to improve and better my riding and experience with horses. Build and go as far as possible with them.

I am a very enthusiastic team player and very well mannered and approachable person. I am easy to get along with and very willing and eager to learn and progress and do the best I can. I like to do everything to perfection and on time and the the best of my ability. I like to think no matter what I do I always do it to the best of my ability.
