Experience with Horses
I have owned my own horses for over 10 years.
National Hunt yard ( & showjumpers) – Home Farm Racing. (2017-2018)
My responsibilities included
Mucking out, tidying muck heap and yard area
Putting horses on the walker/treadmill and lunging
Exercising the horses (on the gallops/schooling over fences, hacking out)
Getting the lorry ready/cleaning out after races/shows
Poo picking, fence repairs, cleaning water troughs and drinkers
Filling haynets, making up feeds, tidying hay barn
Worming/ giving medication
Handling foals and young horses
Weeding/ general gardening around the yard to keep tidy
Turning out and bringing in showjumpers
Sweep out the walker/ clean down the treadmills daily.
Put stable bandages on.
Skip out the stables throughout the day.
P2P yard – (2018-2019)
At the P2P yard we all mucked out together. Took off stable bandages. Quickly and to a high standard. Any muck chucked into the middle of the yard (no wheelbarrows) the tractor would then come through the yard and push the muck into the muck heap at the other end of the barn and bring back a bale of straw
I would then put straw and hay into the stables and bed down on my own whilst the others tacked up and took the horses down the gallops.
In the time they were down the gallops I would bed down the horses and collect hot water in buckets for the horses to be washed down.
My other duties included:
Put on/bring off the walker
Hold horses to be washed down/ wash them down myself.
Clean tack and tidy the tack room.
Ensure all bandages and pads washed and hung to dry for the following day.
Use a leaf blower to blow the muck down to the muck heap (sweep outside if it was wet)
Tidy up the hay/straw barn.
Ensure all pens with horses in have water, hay and clean straw.
Turn horses out/bring them in.
Clean out and hose down the lorry.
Skip out and tidy the stables throughout the morning.
Speak to the owners when they came to visit their horses.
Tidy the drive and around the barn.
Feed the horses.
I would cover some afternoons if other people were sick/ it was their day off.
Mel Packer Equine Vet – Work Experience (2016)
I organised my college placement myself and went to work with my personal vet.

Assisting with X-rays and scans
Vaccinations, blood tests
Assisting with a bone marrow procedure and an eye removal
Worm counts and delivering wormers to clients
Trotting up for lameness

Animal Welfare & Nursing Diploma
I attended college for a year and have a good knowledge of general first aid and administering medication.
I have handled and cared for a range of animals (reptiles, amphibians, birds, mammals, fish and invertebrates).
Strengths and Weaknesses
I can clip, trim, pull and plait to an ok standard – however I know that there’s room for improvement with my clipping and plaiting. I can work both solely and as a team. I am happy to get on and ride anything but sometimes I lack confidence with my riding but I’m always willing to better myself.
I pay attention to detail and I’m hard working.
I love horses and I have a passion to learn new things.
I have worked for Eddie Stobart and a Recruitment agency so I have strong computer skills (Microsoft word) if ever required.
In my next job I would like to find a job where I feel part of the team and want to stay for the foreseeable future.
Accommodation not required if In driving distance.
I have no ongoing commitments
No holidays booked
