Experience with Horses

I am hoping for a practical equine job. I am particularly interested in rehabilitation, training and behaviour based jobs, although I am also very keen to improve my riding and develop more advanced grooming skills.

I have practical experience at a small stud farm as part of a University module, plus additional volunteer work at the same yard. I have 3 years voluntary work experience at a local stable, I also completed a 5 day residential stay at a yard away from home, and seasonal work at a local hacking yard. Recently, I completed a 2 day work experience in the Equine Hydrotherapy Centre at Moulton College.

I have been riding since around the age of 7, I have recently taken up 2 share horses (riding 3-4 days per week) and additional riding of a pony belonging to the owner of one of the horses I am sharing.

I have completed my BHS Progressive Riding Test Stages 1-5 and Stable Management 1-3.

Key Skills

I am able to work well individually or as part of a group, additionally I show valuable leadership qualities and high initiative. I am very organised and have good time-management skills.

My horse-specific skills include general yard duties and working with and riding different types of horses.

Strengths and Weaknesses

Riding and exercising the horses is my favourite part, I also love bonding with the horses and learning their individual personalities and querks. I enjoy having a routine and a busy schedule to keep me occupied throughout the day.

I’d like to improve my riding skills and general skills which i have not had the chance to develop or practice for a while, for example; bandaging, plaiting, pulling and clipping.

I’d like employers to consider me over other jobseekers as I am extremely keen to learn and develop my skills, I have big aspirations for myself working in the equine industry so will not take advantage of any opportunity given to me. I am bubbly, friendly and love working with people and animals.


I would love to gain rehabilitation experience: physiotherapy, hydrotherapy, training etc.

I would really like to ride regularly and have the opportunity to learn and develop my riding skills  and confidence to compete.

I would also like to develop my general grooming skills as mentioned above, for example; clipping and handling youngstock etc.

• Do you need accommodation?

No, I can travel (dependent on distance)

• Do you have any special requirements for any animals you wish to bring with you?


• Do you have any ongoing commitments?

I am currently doing my University course online until mid-May, and I am sharing 2 horses (plus the pony!) 3+ days per week until September when i go on my placement year.

• Do you have any holidays booked that an employer needs to know of?

I have 1 festival booked: 11-15 August.  I am also doing a short work placement at Liphook Equine Hospital from 17-21 May. I will be going on multiple holidays (dependent on COVID), but the dates are not set for these yet.
