Experience with Horses

Outline your experience with horses here/the scope of your freelance services. If you’re looking for a non-equine or non- yard-based job please use this space to describe your experience skills/abilities and adapt the questions to suit your line of work.

Recent employment history

Self – Employed Groom/Rider 26/02/18 – 23/03/2020

  • –  Responsible for a private yard caring for 20 horses and ponies
  • –  Receiving, preparing and managing individual feeds
  • –  Lungeing, assisting the farrier, arranging for rugs to be washed and repaired as well

    as collecting medication

  • –  Assisting children with tacking up and at pony club events
  • –  House sitting for stables including responsibility for multiple dogs and chickens

I would most like to be with the horses in order to expand my equine knowledge and skills in a practical way. Some riding such as hacking would be a bonus.

Key Skills

What are you particularly good at? For example: working alone, working with others, clipping, plaiting, turning out for shows, handling stallions, handling/riding young horses, non-equine skills etc

I am a competent team worker, but at the same time willing to work independently as long as I have clear instructions. I have a lot of experience of holding for farriers but have done less plaiting and clipping. I work methodically with yard tasks and non -equine jobs such as receiving delivery of supplies and collecting medication.
