Key Skills

Able to work alone using my own initiative but also working with others in a team…my experience covers  clipping, plaiting, turning out for shows, riding a variety of horses plus bringing on young horses and schooling.  I’m very quiet around horses and I don’t panic regarding any incidents which may involve horse or rider.

Love working  with horses and I love joining up with them and listening to the horse then you get more from the horse.

Not really 🙃

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

Many years equine experience, mature, trustworthy, reliable and professional at all times

I take pride in my work. I’ve a can do attitude, flexible & conscientious hard worker.  Very organised, great listener and able to take orders but most importantly the horse always comes first. I would be a great asset to any future employer.


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

I would like to continue working with horses ideally on a “Livery/Riding Equestrian” set up OR Private Eventing or Dressage yard.
