Experience with Horses

I have been riding for around 11 years now, competing at BE level. For the last 3 years I have been retraining ex-racehorses and successfully selling them on. I am currently on a gap year looking for further experience working in the equine industry. I am looking for a job which involves general yard duties with the potential to ride.


Key Skills

I am good at working independently, as well as working in a team. I have experience clipping and turning out for shows, doing this to a high standard. I have lots of experience handling and riding thoroughbreds on and off the track, as well as experience with young horses and horses with different traits and quirks. I am a confident and sympathetic rider, and I always aim to get the best out of the horses. I am reliable and efficient, with an eye for detail.


Strengths and Weaknesses

Horses have been part of my life for many years now, and I couldn’t imagine my life without them. I love seeing progress when I ride and working with them. Building relationships with the horses and gaining their trust is something I find special and I really enjoy.

• Is there anything you’d like to improve?

Although I work well independently and within a group situation, I would like to improve my leadership further as this is an area that I haven’t had experience in within a work situation.

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

I am driven and enthusiastic and complete jobs to a high standard. I am a fast worker with excellent time management and am highly organised, with an eye for detail. I am a competent and considerate rider, always having the horses best interest at heart. Horses are a strong passion of mine and I would love to work with them as a career, so I am eager to take away as much as possible and work hard.

I would like to gain further experience in the equine industry, taking away key skills I can apply to future work.


• 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?
