Experience with horses

Riding a variety of horses for 12 years. Experience in unaffiliated competitions and hunting, backing and schooling youngsters and exercising ‘quirky’ mares. Also competed for university which consisted of riding a new horse for 5 minutes before doing a dressage test/ SJ round- always came 1st or 2nd on each horse.


Key Skills

Can work alone or in a team. Great with young and difficult horses, very patient and persistent quiet rider.


Strengths and Weaknesses

• What do you most enjoy about working with horses? I enjoy the challenges of training young/ difficult horses and the sense of achievement from the small wins. I love learning how each horse works and what makes them tick.

• Is there anything you’d like to improve?

I’d like to improve my plaiting. It’s a working progress!

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

I am very trustworthy, references can back me up, I treat every horse like my own and uphold myself to very high standards. I have always been passionate about horses and and would love the opportunity to make them my career.
Also personal skills wise, I am a very easy going individual who has been dubbed the nickname ‘smiler’ in more than one place of work. Very outgoing with a good sense of humour and a small addiction to quirky horses.


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

I would like to gain experience in training horses -eventing, showjumping or hunting in particular. The opportunity to compete would be great but not an essential.

• Do you need accommodation?

If more than 20 miles from Exeter, yes

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

Potentially a friendly Labrador for a couple weeks a year

• Do you have any ongoing commitments?


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