Experience with Horses

  • Before college I did work experience on a livery yard every weekend . This taught me the basics of for example
  • Mucking out
  • Feeding and watering
  • Rug changing
  • Turning out
  • Paddock/yard maintaince
  • Feeding and watering
  • Excersing eg hacking, schooling, lunging, horse walker and long reining
  • Filling hay nets
  • Genral handling eg leading , holding for vet/dentist
  • Going to events and assisting with loading and unloading

I then went to Lackham college and studied level 2 horse care . This gave me a better insight in the world of equine and did classroom and practical work .

I gained more confidence and knowledge as the year went on. At college we would be put on work placements which involved many different yards from livery yards to competition yards .

I have also studied the welfare side of horses including health checks , condition scoring and general duty of care for horses. With this would and so be risk assessments and health and safety checks on different yards .

  • I then moved on to do an apprenticeship at a riding school at the Defence Academy in Shrivingham . This involved not just the general yard duties but working with customers . For example:
  • Tacking up horses ready for lessons
  • Assisting in lessons eg setting up jumping poles , leading horses and ponies for new riders
  • Lunging horses
  • Dealing with booking lessons and taking payments

Strengths and Weaknesses

• What do you most enjoy about working with horses?

Horses for me have always been an interest of mine since the age of 5 . I enjoy the reward you get from working with horses which is knowledge and the peace of working with these animals in general.

To me what I enjoy is that I don’t see it as hard work or tiring , it’s an enjoyable experience everytime .


• Is there anything you’d like to improve?

I know I get worried of sharing my own ideas when ideas to ones to problem solving . That is the only thing I’d want to work on.


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

I’m a very bubbly person and I’m always wanting to make people feel better . I’m punctual and always give a can do attitude towards any job . Plus I will always ask for help or feedback because I feel there is always room to work on something which is a good thing .
