Experience with Horses

I currently am working as a freelance groom for a showjumping yard based in South Norfolk, at the moment this is on a part time basis (unless they are away at shows) I realistically am looking for a full time position. I have grown up around and riding horses from a young age within a family who breed and show Dales & Suffolk Punches.



Key Skills

  • Solely running a yard (from a day to over a week at times)
  • Mucking out
  • Turning out
  • Handling youngstock
  • Handling Stallions
  • Handling fit competition horses
  • Grooming/Bathing
  • Tacking up
  • Light Riding
  • Tack Cleaning



Strengths and Weaknesses

• What do you most enjoy about working with horses?

Horses are my passion, I enjoy spending time with them and love the fact I am able to as my job. I also enjoy learning, in the equestrian world you can never stop learning and I want to be able to progress as much as possible, I am currently sitting my BHS Stages.


• Is there anything you’d like to improve?

My riding confidence is something I would like to improve 100%, I doubt myself to much.


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

I am passionate about my job and care for the horses as they are my own, I am extremely aware of my surroundings and in a horsey environment you always need to be. I like to think of myself as a friendly, outgoing and reliable person who is willing to go the extra mile to help out where necessary as well as take any advice, tips and knowledge onboard.



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

I would like to gain more experience in the equestrian world, that is key to me, as I previously said you can never learn enough and I feel there is still so much to learn alongside applying my skills I already have into the job.


• Do you need accommodation?

No, I live fairly local


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



• Do you have any ongoing commitments?

Only my BHS stages – currently once a week for 3 weeks


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