Experience with Horses

I have been riding since I was 2 years old and have always been very passionate about working with horses. I have owned horses in Zimbabwe over the years which I have ridden and taken care of, While I was in secondary school I was a part of the Equestrian Riding Club for 4 years and competed on school horses in dressage, show jumping and polocrosse. I worked on a diverse yard that competed, taught riding school lessons, bred and backed young stock and trained and exercised other owners horses for 6 months after I finished secondary school. I have done show jumping up to 1 metre, but jumped 1.15 metres at home, novice dressage, cross country and numerous polocrosse games.

In 2018 I came to the United Kingdom to study a 2 year, Level 3 Extended Diploma in Equine Management at Moulton College in which I graduated with D*D*D*. In the 2 years at college I competed on their horses in dressage and show jumping events. Inbetween college I worked part-time for 3 different yards (riding school and two private yards). I am currently working on a family’s private yard where I solely look after and exercise their horses, including house and dog sitting whilst they are away.

Key Skills

I work well alone as I am responsible and use my initiative, but if I need to step back and work with a team I am more than happy to do that. I am a confident rider who always enjoys a challenge and will happily ride any horse I am put on. I am good at handling / riding young horses as well as being a quick learner with good plaiting and turning out skills. I am a friendly person who gets on with everyone and has good communication skills. I am good with animals and happy being around all types.

Strengths and Weaknesses

What do you enjoy most about working with horses? 

I find working with horses to be therapeutic and rewarding due to the time and effort you have put into it. They are incredibly intelligent animals and I find myself  fascinated by what they are capable of.

• Is there anything you’d like to improve?

I would like to expand my knowledge of looking after and riding high level competition horses as well as improving in show jumping and cross country. I would like to gain more experience that I have not yet had and learn as much as I can.

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

I am extremely passionate about my job and am not afraid of hard work or getting dirty. I will always give my best and make room for improvement. I am a responsible and loyal employee who is very capable of being left to get on with the day to day yard duties.


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

I would like to be a part of a team where I could gain valuable experience as well as improving my riding skills and pushing myself beyond my comfort zone. Ideally I would love to work on an eventing yard where I could ride, compete and assist at competitions with the team, as well as carry out my daily yard duties. If it is required I would like to complete my HGV Licence.

• Do you need accommodation?

Yes please

• Do you have any special requirements for any animals you wish to bring with you? 


• Do you have any ongoing commitments?


• Do you have any holidays booked that an employer needs to know of?

I will be with family in Zimbabwe until 16th January 2021 and am available for full time work after this date.
