Experience with Horses

I have ridden and owned horses and ponies since I was a small child and it was only natural that a decided to pursue a career in the equine industry. I have hunted since I was little and have been able to enjoy days visiting many packs throughout the UK. I studied a degree in Equine Science at the Royal Agricultural University, graduating with a 2:1 in July 2012. Whilst at university I kept my own horse and worked for Event rider Harry Meade, during the summer breaks. In my final year I combined my studies with a full time job on a Point-to-Point yard where I took sole charge of 7 Pointers, undertaking all the fitness work, including fast work and schooling over fences, and day to care, up to travelling them to the races and leading up in the paddock. I remained at this yard for a number of years after I graduated and combined working there with freelance riding and grooming work. This included returning to Harry Meades yard and riding for international event rider Clark Montgomery. Following this, I spent a year as sole charge groom for the Saturday Field Master of the Beaufort Hunt. I was then offered an opportunity to work as head groom and rider on a top yard in Ireland producing youngsters for racing, eventing, hunting and showjumping and worked there from December 2014 to July 2016 before returning to England as sole charge groom for a Master of the Berkeley Hunt.

I have since undertaken a position at Weatherbys as the supervisor of the Point-to-Point department and have developed my administration and managerial skills in this role, whilst continuing to ride for local Event Rider, Matt Earth.

I have enjoyed successes in team chasing and continue to compete when I can, and enjoy returning to Ireland to Hunt.

I enjoying being around horses and get a great sense of contempt from looking after them. I continually strive to further my knowledge and experiences with them and have recently qualified as an Equine Sports Massage Therapist.

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

I am an incredibly dedicated person who puts the care of the horses above anything else. I am hard working and loyal and treat each horse as an individual.



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

I am looking for a position for life where I can put my skills to use to the benefit of the horses, whilst continuing to learn.

• Do you need accommodation?

This depends on the position, I would be prepared to move and so would then need accommodation.

• Do you have any ongoing commitments?


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