Experience with Horses

An organised positive and hardworking individual, who always strives to achieve the highest standard possible, at any given task. I have had a passion for horses from a very young age and it is something that has never left me. I worked for the local riding stables to start with and worked hard and progresses to getting a head grooms job with show jumper Fiona Burgoyne at Horse Choice where my knowledge and experience grew greatly. During my time working in sales I still do a lot of show prep for people going to dressage, showing and local shows as it is still a massive passion. My passion for grooming and turn out is something I take great pride in I always do my best to turn out any horse to a high standard whether this is at a show or at home. As well as the welfare and presentation of the horses I do believe another important job as a competition groom is to be able to have the riders trust. I am very reliable and have been known to keep everything at a show calm and smooth sailing so the rider can just focus on what they have to do in the ring and not have anything else to worry about, therefor having a great show day.
