Experience with Horses

I have many years of experience with horses from my own horses, to working with horses.

From leaving school, I went to study horse management at college for 2 years, which I progressed with my riding and my yard management skills. While attending college I worked at the Police Yard for a while  doing general yard duties, and keeping the horses turned out ready to go on patrol.

I have also had experience on a dealers yard when I was 16 (while at college).

I have a lot of experience with youngsters, Competition horses, Hunters, Racehorses..

I bought my own Racehorse off the track, and started a fresh with him after him being turned away for a few months. He was 3 when I bought him, and I re-schooled him to be a Showhorse. Which he has been amazing and we have competed at places such as Aintree Racecourse Championships and the Royal Highland.

I also worked on a Private Show Yard/Hunt Yard, for over 2 years. While working there I attended competitions. Preparing horses for the Competition; (clipping, pulling, plaiting, ect) Exercising horses, lunging, long reigning, schooling, hacking. Getting the Hunt horses fit ready for the season. Keeping the yard immaculate, and the horses happy in their environment. Looking after the field horses, water checked hay given if needed ect.

Working alongside; Vet, Farrier, Physio’s ect. Keeping a check on when the horses needed any Vacations and when they needed shod too.




Key Skills 

 working alone, working with others, clipping, plaiting, turning out for shows, handling stallions, handling/riding young horses, yard duties. Invoices and ordering feed,bedding ect. 



Strengths and Weaknesses

• What do you most enjoy about working with horses? I love everything about working with horse, everyday is different!


• Why should employers consider you above any other job seeker?

I’m very reliable, caring towards people and animals. I’m very hardworking and I love working! I’m responsible and will go out of my way to make sure all jobs are done a the best of my ability. I’m easy to work with and will make sure I help my workmates in anyway that I can!


I would love a change and to move away from Newcastle! I have one horse who would be coming with me too! He’s a quite natured TB.
