Experience with Horses

I have around 10 years experience with horses. I have my own off the track Thoroughbreds at home who I have trained up and regularly work at my local racetrack handling youngsters, hot thoroughbreds, etc working as a stablehand.

I also train/work others’ horses at home including show jumpers, eventers and mostly dressage horses.

Previous roles entail riding and training as well as caring and maintaining eventing warm bloods for competition, both youngsters and older.

I have also extensive showing experience, mostly riding and training ponies through to thoroughbreds for showing competition and some groom work.

Key Skills

I work well alone or in a group. I have standard knowledge of plaiting, etc as my experience predominantly lies in ridden skills, handling of young horses and training. I also have experience with stallions/colts.

Outside of the equine industry, I have extensive administrative experience, office and computer skills as well as optimal customer service skills (over the phone and face to face).

I am also studying online currently from Australia where I’m a current third year student in Psychological Science.

Strengths and Weaknesses

• What do you most enjoy about working with horses?

Riding, training, feeding, grooming

• Is there anything you’d like to improve?

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

I possess a high level of motivation, enthusiasm and passion which I can bring  to a team. I am also very open to experience and learning new skills in a new environment with horses being the common passion.


• What would you like to do or gain in your next job?

Furthering my skills as a rider and groom in the competition atmosphere, also furthering competition turnout skills including plaiting and clipping.
