Experience with Horses

I have had a passion for horses from a very young age, having started riding at the age of four, mainly competing in showjumping and pony club whilst at school. I am an experienced groom and rider with six years working in the equestrian industry. From August 2014 to August 2018 I worked on a competitive dressage yard as a work and competition rider, focusing on producing and competing young dressage horses, and ponies. From August 2018 to June 2019 I gained more experience working as a rider at a backing and sales yard in Dorset. More recently I worked at a racing yard in Australia. I am now looking to further my knowledge and experience, into my true passion, eventing. I have competed unaffiliated eventing to 100cm and competed affiliated British Dressage to Advanced Medium. Represented England at BD Home international 2017. Looking to find my next challenge in an eventing yard where I can broaden my skillset.

Key Skills

  • Backing and producing young horses
  • Sole charge
  • Staff management of up to 6 staff members
  • Plaiting
  • Handling stallions

Strengths and Weaknesses

I most enjoy working with younger horses and seeing them progress. I would like to improve my skills in showjumping in an eventing capacity. I am a hard worker and take pride in working to a very high standard. I would also like to gain my HGV license.


I would like to gain more experience working in a competitive eventing yard and thrive on staying busy.

I will be applying to university to study environmental science beginning in September 2021, therefore I will only be looking for jobs with a maximum availability of one year.
