Experience with Horses

Woodside Farm –

I help manage at this competition yard for 20+ hours per week. This includes helping prepare the horses ready for shows, taking payment from customers whose horse is in on livery, feeding, mucking out, general duties and tacking up, riding/ exercising where necessary.

Foxhounds Riding School –

I helped manage the yard at this busy riding school for 2 days per week. This includes dealing with customers and helping them prepare to ride the horses, taking payment, feeding, tacking up the horses/ponies and helping to teach the younger riders.


Key Skills

– working alone

– working with others

– clipping


-turning out for shows

-handling stallions

-handling/riding young horses


Strengths and Weaknesses

• What do you most enjoy about working with horses?

The thing i most enjoy about working with young horses especially is seeing their progress improve over time. It can be a very rewarding job as all the hard work you put in you get to see the rewards as time goes on.

• Is there anything you’d like to improve?

• Why should employers consider you above any other job seeker?

I find myself to be a very motivated and hardworking person. When I want to achieve something, I ensure I do everything in my power to do so, so if I do not achieve my goals, I can say to myself “I did everything I could.” I hold myself to an extremely high standard and ensure that the work I do is the best it can be. ‘Self-disciplined’ is another word I would use to describe myself. If working towards a deadline, I ensure that I commit as much time and energy possible to ensure the deadline is met. I also consider myself as a people person and I am friendly when it comes to interacting with customers, often using humour. I am regarded by others as being a very polite, kind, and pleasant person to be around. I am very capable with dealing with stress and overcoming stressful situations. I enjoy working with others and working as a team alongside my co-workers. I believe I excel at communicating with an eye for detail, always reliable and helpful. I am looking to use my current skills to broaden my horizons in a position where I can work towards my goals.


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

I would like to gain more experience  and expand my knowledge within the horse industry while doing what i enjoy most. This would allow me to improve my own skills and improve my riding to a higher level

• Do you need accommodation?

not necessarily

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


• Do you have any ongoing commitments?


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