Experience with Horses

  • I have been riding for 3.5 years, have worked with horses for this amount of time also. I have experience in livery yards, polo, eventing and a very small amount of experience with hunt grooming.
  • I know how to do stables to a high standard.
  • All yard duties.
  • Exercising sets.
  • Hacking.
  • Have clipped my own horse and hogged polo ponies.
  • Plait manes, but need more practice with tails.
  • Bandage.
  • First Aid.

I am looking for a yard based job but I have been doing a small amount of freelancing the past couple of months to keep me ticking over.



Key Skills

  • I am great at working with others.
  • I am also good at working alone once I know the yard.
  • Taking set out (exercised 6 ponies at the same time)
  • Pick things up quickly.
  • Housekeeping.



Strengths and Weaknesses

• What do you most enjoy about working with horses?

I love seeing horses excel and seeing them happy. I also love to please their owners by making sure my standard of work is high.

• Is there anything you’d like to improve?

I would love to do some BHS Stages and eventually do some coaching. I would also need to improve my schooling skills and broaden my knowledge of other disciplines.

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

I believe employers should consider me over other job seekers because I am very hardworking, I know when to be professional and also when to have a laugh. I can also adapt myself to different situations and not panic when things get tough. Although I have not been within the industry long I can pick skills, tips and tricks up very quickly. I am also extremely clean when it comes to accommodation as I have a history of housekeeping.


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

I would like to do some competitions, obtain my BHS stages and be able to do some coaching once settled within the role and gaining the relevant experience.

• Do you need accommodation?

Yes preferably single accommodation but willing to have shared as long as they are clean.

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

I have my own horse which I would like to take with me but if not possible I would like to have him at a nearby livery yard and reasonable work times so I can tend to him also.

• Do you have any ongoing commitments?

I have no commitments.

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

No holidays booked.
