Experience with Horses

I learnt to ride at the age of 3 and eventually got my first horse at the age of 12. From then on I have done a wide range of activities with horses including showing and showjumping, hunting, fun rides and breeding. I have broke in a number of my own horses and helped out with other people’s horses. I have worked on a dressage yard, two racing yards (including hacking out the racers) and I am now working on a showjumping yard with 14 stabled horses. I do all general yard duties, help out with breaking, covering, vet/farrier visits, foaling/youngstock and help on show days.


Key Skills

I am good at working alone and I am often left to manage the yard by myself but I can also work in a team. I can clip, plait and turnout due to showing my own horses for around 8 years but I am always open to improvement or tips on these skills as I understand each breed has different showing standards. I handle stallions daily at work and at home as I have two of my own and I help with covering mares through the summer. I have always had youngsters as I enjoy starting them from scratch and making them into your own. I help out with the backing and lunging part of this at my work.


Strengths and Weaknesses

• What do you most enjoy about working with horses?

I enjoy being around horses, they are a part of my life and I love the challenges and achievements they give.

• Is there anything you’d like to improve?

I would like to perfect more of my skills and add skills, having more opportunity to make a career as an equestrian is a serious interest of mine.

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

Im dedicated, work hard and am a loyal, trustworthy person. I will take on any task and make sure it is carried out to my best standard.


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

I would like a role on a smaller yard that gives me more riding opportunities.  The chance to be instructed and compete would be a fantastic bonus as I am always looking to improve.

• Do you need accommodation?

I would prefer accommodation as I am looking to move out, however if the yard is close to my current location then accommodation isn’t necessary.

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

I have one small dog and 3 guinea pigs, these would be a priority to come with me. I have my own horses but opportunity to bring just one would be a plus. If I am happy with the job I am willng to relocate.

• Do you have any ongoing commitments?

No I don’t have any serious ongoing commitments, I do have courses but they are done at home and any practical days can be booked at any approved centre. I compete with my own horses so I would like an opportunity to still do that if I can.

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

I currently have a weekend booked in this country in august but due to the current covid situation I am uncertain if that will still be going ahead.
