Experience with Horses

I worked at Helgstrand Dressage as a groom in 2016/17, where I would take care of 10-15 horses a day and accompany the riders to competitions. I am experienced in plaiting, bandaging, handling stallions at home and in busy environments such as competitions, alongside all the key skills a groom needs to take care of top quality horses. I have been riding all types of horses for the most of my life across a range of different disciplines. I started teaching children to ride when I was 14, and I still teach both adults and children from intro to advanced medium level, which is something I really enjoy.



Key Skills

I have experience breaking in and educating young horses up to advanced medium level and really enjoy this type of work, however I have aspirations to reach a higher level in the future. I am also an experienced groom, having worked in a top dressage stable in Denmark, which means I have all the skills required to be a groom at competitions and at home.



Strengths and Weaknesses

I have not competed much in the last couple of years because of my studies, but I would definitely want to get back in the game.

I gained a lot of experience as a competition groom in Denmark. I would accompany my rider at stallion shows, young horse championships and other competitions.

In my active years I competed in dressage, showjumping, eventing and driving. Although I have not had the chance to compete since 2016, I would love to have the opportunity to start competing again.



• I am looking for a groom/rider job with the opportunity to either groom for other riders at shows or competing myself.


• I would prefer the option of accommodation, but for the right job I can consider finding own accommodation.
