Experience with Horses

I have worked with horses for a number of years on different types of yards, which have all been amazing. At the moment I am a yard manager at an Equine College, where I look after the yard, supervise and teach students on the yard and organised and run Dressage Unaff and British Dressage.

  • Can work on own initiative and in a team
  • Enjoys a challenge and strives for self-improvement
  • clipping/trimming/turning out/plaiting all to a high standard
  • Experience handling stallions/young and fit competition horses
  • Capable rider
  • Experience driving a 3.5t lorry

Strengths and Weaknesses

• What do you most enjoy about working with horses?

Everything! Even the wet/cold mornings! Horses have been a massive part of my life since a very young age, they are the most beautiful animals. I love watching them progress and learn new things, it’s so rewarding.

• Is there anything you’d like to improve?

I think there is always room for everyone to improve something, especially in the Equine industry! I love learning and improving.

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

I am a highly motivated and organised person with seven years experience in a management position. I am a self-starter and always keen to learn new skills.  I am keen to progress, expanding my knowledge and experience and have proven myself as a valuable asset.


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

I would love to gain more knowledge and experience in the Equine industry as I think you can never know enough! I would also like to gain experience/training on my own horse and have the opportunity to progress up the levels in British Dressage.

• Do you need accommodation?


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

Would love to bring my very well behaved 1 year old golden Labrador, good with people, horses and other dogs. Also bring my beautiful 16.2hh 8 year old Gelding KWPN, no vices and very easy to have around.
