Experience with Horses

Produced and show jumped at competition level until marriage and other commitments. BSc in Equine Training and Management. Very confident with young fit competition horses and willing to assist in any discipline.


Key skills

I have excellent communication skills. Can use own initiative to make decisions working well within a team.

Plaiting, clipping, trimming a speciality as is handling and riding youngsters.


Strengths and Weaknesses

• What do you most enjoy about working with horses?

I most enjoy every aspect the job entails. Interaction with youngsters and job satisfaction in producing fit, happy willing competition horses. I focus too much on attention to detail of a project that can be obsessive. However, I am working on this to ensure I manage a project or task in a timely way.

I am capable within any discipline and have an extremely calm can do attitude. However, I am keen to improve my  dressage skills.

My previous experiences and talent with young difficult horses, exposure to showing, in hand, under saddle from a young age and competing should be an asset to any establishment.

I would like to become part of a competition, training yard. Working alone or part of a team is not a problem. Assisting children giving them confidence to achieve and compete gives me great satisfaction. To enhance yard management skills.
