Experience with Horses

Been working with horses for over 7 years, been training in showjumping for most of my time. I helped school horses at a riding school in South Africa and worked at a warmblood stud. I also specialise in equine photography, and have been for over 3 years.


Key Skills

I am good at working alone or together. Good at grooming in quick situations or a thorough groom, my plaiting and clipping is alright but there’s always time to improve on those. I have dealt with lots of young horses whilst working at the stud.
I am able to tell when horses are not feeling their best in health and helping where needed.


Strengths and Weaknesses

• What do you most enjoy about working with horses?

I most enjoy figuring out every horses personality and their quirks.


• Is there anything you’d like to improve?

I would like to learn more about show turn out and handling stallions. I am short so I haven’t ridden many horses over 16.3 but would love to learn, fine handling on ground.

• Why should employers consider you above any other 😕

I am a hard worker and love to learn new things! I am very passionate and love to care for horses!


• What would you like to do or gain in your next job?

I’d love to gain new grooming skills and new riding skills. (I would consider myself a decent rider but there’s lots I’d love to improve on)

• Do you need accommodation?

Yes I would need accommodation

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

No, don’t have any animals

• Do you have any ongoing commitments?

No I do not have any commitments

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

Sometime in summer will be travelling for a month.
