Experience with Horses

A competent and hardworking with over 10 years of experience with horses. Confident to work in all situations with a high level of attention to detail as well as a strong work ethic. Nearly 5 years of experience working within the industry. Looking for a full time position within the equine industry.


Key Skills

– plaiting and high standards of turnout

– clipping

– coping with fit competition horses and riding large horse

– good eye for detail

– highly task motivated


Strengths and Weaknesses

• I enjoy working with horses and getting to know each one individually and what makes them work to their full potential

• I’d like to work on a smaller yard where I can have a more hands on approach to each horse

• I’m confident with my work and try to do everything to my highest abilityif this means staying on a little late to make sure everything is done to a professional level then that is what I will do.



• I’d like to find a small friendly yard where I can work sole charge or part of a team to care for event/hunt/show jump horses and help to make sure they are at their best to achieve the goals of the team.


• Do you need accommodation?

If it is to far from Wincanton where I call home then I would need accommodation


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

I have a 16hh event mare who I have on loan that would need to come with me but I am happy to sort her out of hours and she is very low maintenance to keep. I also have a 2 year old black lab who works with me at my current job but if she is not possible to bring with me then that is not a problem.


• Do you have any ongoing commitments?

I would need to give a month notice to my current employer.


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