Experience with Horses

I have over 15 years experience around horses and have 8 years experience of working as a professional groom after finishing my degree in Equine Sports Science. I have worked in Australia as well as the UK. I have a range of experience, from working as a sole charge groom taking care of 6 + horses, to managing yard of 17-20 competition horses. I have experience up to FEI 4* and at my current job had the opportunity to groom at a Lier CDI in Belgium. I have experience looking after stallions and young horses. I also have started and produced some young dressage horses which I love to do.



Key Skills

Show grooming, clipping, trimming, plaiting. Tack up / do off to a high standard. Lunge, exercise on flat, hack, back young horses. Manage staff, ordering and organise vet farrier etc. Keep yard to high standard and running efficiently. Train staff.



Strengths and Weaknesses

I love taking care of my horses to the highest standard and helping them to reach their full potential. I really enjoy competition grooming especially at stay away shows where I get to spend quality time taking care of a few horses. I love training young horses. Seeing them progress and gain confidence is one of my favourite things.

I love the proud feeling when you watch your horse and rider trot down the centre line.

I would love the chance to groom at more Internationals especially overseas. I am working towards getting my HGV license as soon as I can.

I consistently go above and beyond for my horses and I work hard to make sure my yard is a friendly and healthy work environment. I have high standards and uphold them at all times. I have skills and knowledge which I have acquired over my career with many amazing riders and grooms. I currently work as assistant manager for a top british international rider and have had lots of wonderful opportunities and leaned alot but I really want to get back to running a yard myself and being the main competition groom. I am ready to find my forever job and bring all the skills I have and keep growing to be the best I can be.



I would like to manage the yard and groom at competitions. I would also love the chance to work with some young horses again.

If suitable, private accommodation would be a plus. However I live with my partner of 10 years so he and I would both have to live there. We are mote than happy to find our own accom otherwise.

I would ideally like the possibility of having a well behaved dog in the future

1st – 7th july inclusive already booked off.
