Experience with Horses

I completed my equine apprenticeship “Pferdewirt für Service und Haltung” in July 2016, which I received with honours and have worked in a number of different locations gaining a vast range of experience since then.

After completing my equine apprenticeship, I had the opportunity to work as a groom for Pia Gabriel-Vaugoin, a Grand Prix dressage rider in Austria, alongside the former head rider of the Royal Spanish Riding School in Vienna Arthur Kottas-Heldenberg. Since then I have worked as an assistant farrier (picking up a number of useful farriery skills) and also with riding trail companies in Iceland and Portugal.

I am currently working at one of the largest equine rescue and welfare centres in the UK and prior to this I was solely in charge of the feeding, medication and minor veterinary care of over 20 horses, plus training them to a level that they can go safely through a year of trail riding with different riders from all over the globe.

Having built up a strong portfolio of experience from working with different horses and people around the world, I’m now looking to move further south in the UK to be based closer to my girlfriend.

I see myself as a very flexible person who can adapt very quickly to different situations. In my current role, I have developed my experience of working in a larger team, but I can also work well independently or as part of a smaller team. I am confident to make decisions that are the best for the horse’s wellbeing.


Key Skills

Handling, groundwork, lunging, clipping, turnout, working alone/with others, riding, first aid, hoof care


Strengths and Weaknesses

• What do you most enjoy about working with horses?

Seeing the improvement in horses, both in terms of behaviour and in their physical improvements

• Is there anything you’d like to improve?

I always look to further my understanding of horses

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

I offer a wide variety of different skills and can adapt really quick to certain situations due my prior experiences with different horses in different countries


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

I’d like a position where put all of my skills and experience to use, and develop these even further

• Do you need accommodation?

Would be nice, but it’s not mandatory – I am happy to find somewhere nearby

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

In October from the 12th to the 18th (my birthday)
