Experience with Horses
I have worked with horses all of my adult life, with a verity of types of horses, (last 35 years mostly Arabians), Stud work, driving horses, showing both ridden and in hand at top level.
I have just taken voluntary redundancy from my job of 40 years, running a private stables, (as the owner is cutting down greatly). Showing Arabian horses both in hand and under saddle, as well as caring for the family’s horses. Also breeding up to 5 Arabian horses, a year, using the owners own stallions, also AI work.
Lone working. Working to a high standard. Working in a small team, or over seeing a small team. Turning horses out to a high standard (produced a number of National Champions, HOYS winners, taken Arabians to the World Championships, with great success) Experienced in all stud work, from handling stallions, young stock, foaling etc.
