Experience with Horses

I have ridden from a young age however had a large gap as a teen as it wasn’t considered a viable career choice by family. At 18 I became a ‘late’ apprentice for a mature dressage rider in Yorkshire and it was here my want work hard in the industry for the foreseeable really began.

After a couple of years I then got a fantastic opportunity in the North West again, where I lived on site for almost 5 years as head instructor but also doubled up as groom/rider/owners assistant. 70+ horses both riding school And various livery clients, lots of shows with good sj and xc facilities. I was first point of contact for owners, ride lots of horses daily, taught full time private’s and groups across all levels both flat/jump 6days a week including running the Manchester Equestrian team.

For a while after this I freelanced to gain more experience on the show circuit and groom at a higher level these included Gornall Equestrian, Jay Buxton and then went on to move overseas spending time in California on the sj circuit for w riders with a string of 10 top horses in age classes and then also most recently Canada in spring of 2019.

In 2016 seeking a whole new change, I moved to the Turks and Caicos islands. Bringing my experience to a barn out there had its own challenges but it was awesome! I guided tours for thousands of tourists over my 4 years there and most importantly to me helped make changes to improve performance in the horses and the team and led a successful small equestrian lesson programme weekly with 30+ riders.

I’m a strong team player and like to get whatever needs doing done. I don’t like mess and I’m extremely punctual. I have a great sense of humour so I like to be in a team that’s fun and lovely as well as one that works equally hard.

Extremely willing to take on constructive criticism and adapt mys style/skills to suit the individual preference with no fuss.
