I am a good all rounder – working well in both a ‘team’ as an individual. I have an eye for detail and require everything to be right first time, every time. Time keeping is key.
Strengths and Weaknesses
• Every horse is different. Personalities and attitudes are individual attributes and I excel on treating all horses fairly, whilst taking in their own needs.
• I am a very committed person who will give you everything that you require. Horses are my passion and I thrive on the ‘can do’ mentality.
Please don’t let my age put you off as I am fit, productive and still have the love for the job in hand.
• What would you like to do or gain in your next job?
I am open to all suggestions and experiences.
• Do you need accommodation?
No accommodation is needed
• Do you have any special requirements for any animals you wish to bring with you?
I have one horse, but he does not need to come with me.
• Do you have any ongoing commitments?
• Do you have any holidays booked that an employer needs to know of?
