Experience with Horses

Hi there,

I am lucky to have had the opportunity to work with horses for most of my life. I have plenty of experience in show jumping – mostly having brought on many young horses from just backed onto higher level competition. I really enjoy flat work with youngers.


Key Skills

Particularly good at working with young horses – producing for competition.



Strengths and Weaknesses

• What do you most enjoy about working with horses?

It is the most rewarding job. I am forever amazed at what I learn from them.

• Is there anything you’d like to improve?

I would like to improve my experience in higher level competition – mostly make it to the 1.20m classes before the horses get sold. Part of the job! Although it would be wonderful to be sponsored just to compete.

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

I love my job. I am very patient with these animals. I form a deep understanding with each horse I work, and at the end of the day my goal for every horse is to improve them to the best of my knowledge – they always end up teaching me something too!


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

Ideally I would love to work as a freelance rider – travelling from yard to yard. The next best would be to join a family owned yard and be their stable rider – schooling ponies/horses for their kids. Next option would be working in sales yards – I can bring on horses very quickly and professionally if need be(Not my favourite thing to do, but when time is money it is what it is!).

• Do you need accommodation?

That will depend on location.

• 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?
