Experience with Horses
Outline your experience with horses here/the scope of your freelance services. If you’re looking for a non-equine or non- yard-based job please use this space to describe your experience skills/abilities and adapt the questions to suit your line of work.
At the age of 8 I was able to ride a 14h horse without a lead rein and even complete the rising trot! Between the ages of 12 and 13 I was able to walk, trot, canter and hack 16h competition horses in the republic of Georgia. Between the ages of 13 and 15 I owned a 16h Irish Sport horse, whom I took to a number of showjumping, cross country and dressage competitions. At the same time I completed my D, D + and C badges as part of the Aberconwy pony club. I have also spent some time as a stable hand and groom at a local livery yard and the Richard Owen Equine clinic in St Asaph. I have sufficient experience riding youngsters and stallions at my previous livery and am a confident rider with an excellent seat for showjumping. I am also currently completing a degree in Animal Science so I have also spent a lot of time handling horses in a clinical setting, as well as assessing their behaviour and demeanour.
What are you particularly good at? For example: working alone, working with others, clipping, plaiting, turning out for shows, handling stallions, handling/riding young horses, non-equine skills etc
I work very well as part of a team and pride myself on my communication skills and enthusiasm for my work. I take initiative in the tasks I am expected to complete and aim to complete them to the best of my ability. I have been handling horses my entire life and can bandage, groom, clip and ride them. I enjoy simple yard working such as mucking out, feeding and turning horses out and thoroughly enjoy working around horses. I am also very organised and love to spend any extra time cleaning tack sheds or organising bridles so the task of tacking up can be that much easier.
Strengths and Weaknesses
• What do you most enjoy about working with horses?
For the people who love horses (like me) time spent riding and caring for them creates natural, organic interactions and it gives me a deep sense of fulfilment that no other careers can.
• Is there anything you’d like to improve?
I would like to improve my skills necessary to run a competition and/or stud farm, such as training stallions and youngsters.
• Why should employers consider you above any other job seeker?
Besides the bountiful equine experience and determination I have, I am cheerful and witty especially when the workload can seem overbearing! I will turn up to work with a big smile on my face every morning because the idea of working with horses and as part of a big team will be my motivation.
• What would you like to do or gain in your next job?
Experience on a working stud farm or competition farm
• 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?
• Do you have any holidays booked that an employer needs to know of?
