Experience with Horses

I have been dealing and working with horses for 20+ years now. During that time I have worked in numerous sectors of the horse industry:

-at a riding school where I would teach on Saturdays. Or I would be left to run the yard and organise the lessons for the other instructor. I am a level 1 accredited coach as well as having a diploma in horse management.

– I have worked on a racing yard for 6 years riding out racehorses, attending race meetings, preparing horses to run. On numerous occasions I have been left with sole charge of the yard while the trainers had been away.

– I have been a groom to one of the ledbury hunt masters. I was left with sole charge of the yard most days, all duties included mucking out, riding, preparing horses for hunt days, clipping, equine first aid.

-full time groom for 2 years (sole charge) of a yard with 6 horses for a family who worked away all week. I was in charge of the horses welfare. From general yard duties to their individual fitness regime and feeding requirements. The owners would hunt and regularly compete (Eventing) I would school, hack and jump their horses.

– part time groom at a dressage yard(general yard duties and some riding)

– head groom for an elderly lady who kept young warmbloods (Dealer)

Strengths and Weaknesses

• I enjoy the challenges and rewards that working with horses brings.
I work well under pressure, and am happy to step in when necessary.


• I would like to carry on improving my knowledge both ridden and practical based.


• I believe myself to be asset to any yard, with my extensive knowledge and experience, combined with my drive to work hard and desire to be a high achiever.

• I am dependable and always strive for the best with whatever I put my mind to.

• One of my weaknesses would be that I sometimes have trouble asking for help, and I have struggled to keep a healthy work/life balance very often letting work take over.

I am now looking for a new venture, preferably a managerial one with more responsibility. It would be a step up in my career and a challenge, where I believe I would thrive.

• Do you have any special requirements for any animals you wish to bring with you?
I do own a 3 well behaved dogs 2 small terrier types and a cocker spaniel I would  like to accompany me to work.


• Do you have any ongoing commitments?
Only my current job where I would have to give notice.


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