Experience with Horses

I am a very hard working individual and happy to experience all range of animal and horse related work. I have ridden and been around horses for over 15 years and have now decided it is time to turn my passion into a career. Currently I am working as a Private Dressage Groom in Frankfurt with Grand Prix horses.

I have just returned from Australia where I worked with Thoroughbred Racehorses, Warm and Hot bloodied horses also. I am experienced in the daily tasks of a working stable, good time management and working quickly, safely and efficiently. I am a competent hard working employee. I have experience with Colts, Stallions, Fillies, Mares and Yearlings. I have also worked in private stables over the years carrying out the role as a stable hand. I am more than happy to travel internationally within my role.

My experience includes;

– Saddling/tacking horses with both jumping, dressage, western saddles and Racing pads

-Preparing horses for competitions (and preparing equipment, tack and horse transporter)

-Rehabilitation and usage of the Aquatrainer and Spa facilities

-Managing Nutrition plans and specialist dietary requirements

-Washing and Grooming horses for departure, client visits and trainer video updates

-Moving horses on and off trucks and allocating stables

-Moving horses on and off the walker, to different parts of the property

-Assisting Farriers and Veterinarians (X-Rays, Castrations, Injuries, Lancing Hemotomas, Stitches, Injections, Abscesses)

-Recognising and dealing with Colic

-Rehabilitation treatments (eg, icing, Massagin Horse Rug and Vibration Wraps)

-Laser Therapy

-Updating and administering Medical Plans

-Supervising horses on the treadmill

-Assisting riders

-Wrapping injuries

-Basic duties such as rugging, feed runs, cleaning stables, making feeds and assisting with the day to day running of the property.

-Recognising the symptoms of illness

-Taking and recording temperatures daily

-Administering Oral and Rectal Medication

Previously I have also volunteered at Animal Sanctuaries, Dog Kennels, Dog walking and helped friends care for their horses. I would really love the opportunity to further my knowledge and education. I am also furthering my education by studying online. In the past few months I have completed my certificate ICOES which covered animal care and the role of a Veterinarian. Currently I am studying Equine Anatomy and Physiology with TOCES. Once completing this I intend to continue my Equine studies.

In terms of non-equine related skills I am very sociable. I am happy to take appointments, deal with horse owners and clients on a professional yet personal level. Prior to my Equine career I was a Business Developer and travelled all over the UK. This has given me great experience in client relations, organisational skills and self promotion, which can be linked with various aspects of managing an equine business.

I would love the opportunity to work at any number of different equestrian disciplines, with a particular interest in working as a Polo Groom.


Strengths and Weaknesses

I love the general care of the horses and seeing the improvement in their skills, temperament and health in their day to day life. I am eager to incorporate more riding into my life and would love the opportunity to do this within or outside of my working role hours. I would love to improve my lunging skills, but overall I am happy to learn, progress and experience in the horse world. I thoroughly enjoy responsibility and finishing the day with all my jobs completed, to gain full job satisfaction.

In my opinion there is always space to improve and not only to improve, but to understand different aspects of the job and different ways of carrying out particular tasks. I would say my strengths are my high quality of work, a keen eye for detail, professional and time managed approach to given tasks. My top priority is the animals under my care and I strive for perfection within this. I am approachable and work-oriented and enjoy working in a reliable fun team. I am very aware of my safety, that of my team and of the horses too.
