Experience with Horses

I started riding when I was a teenager and returned to it 3 years ago. For the past year and a half I have loaned a horse from a riding school, this has enabled me to gain experience and knowledge in stable management, horse behavior and horse care, along side with riding 6 days a week.

Previous to this, I have been riding for a further one and a half years, having lessons twice a week from a BHSII instructor with extensive experience in schooling and jumping.

I now enjoy taking my 13.2 cob George to local unaffiliated Dressage, SJ and XC events. I am now looking for a career in the equine industry to expand my knowledge and to hopefully find a full time paid job which is also my hobby.


Key Skills

I am currently know as the ‘yard plaiter’ who plaits for all horses and ponies at the riding school for internal and external competitions up to dressage elementary level. I regularly turn my loan pony out for dressage shows which can be a challenge as he is a white cob with feathers who just loves to roll,  this has given me great experience in bathing and hot clothing in the colder months. For the past 3 years, I have been lucky enough to ride a wide variety of horses and ponies at different levels and have thoroughly enjoyed seeing the improvement in them throughout our training sessions.


Strengths and Weaknesses

• What do you most enjoy about working with horses?

I enjoy plaiting and turning out for shows, I also enjoy working with young horses and bringing them on.

• Is there anything you’d like to improve?

Knowledge of feed and horsemanship. I have also never clipped, however I would love to learn!

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

Willingness to learn and grow within the equine industry.



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

Gain confidence in experiencing different disciplines.

• Do you need accommodation?

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