Experience with Horses

I have owned my own horses and been involved with horses since I was old enough to walk and love all aspects of caring for them.

A trustworthy and reliable person, possessing a good sense of humour and an easy going and cheerful disposition. Adept at delivering a quality service to both colleagues and clients. Showing competence and confidence, with equal ability to communicate with sympathy and empathy to clients whilst maintaining a professional approach. Displaying excellent interpersonal skills, finding face to face customer interaction very rewarding and equally happy working on own initiative or as part of a team. Always looking to ensure that client requirements are met with a very flexible approach and willingness to help out in any area if required. Passionate about animals and their welfare, with over 30 years of animal ownership/care responsibilities of all types of animals. Proficient at using Microsoft Word, Excel and Sage software.


Key Skills

  • A good representative for an employer in terms of attitude and appearance
  • Confident IT skills including Microsoft, Excel and Sage software
  • Strong organisational ability
  • Recognises the importance of attention to detail
  • Responding positively to requests for help and support
  • Good communicator at all levels from client to director
  • Able to follow instruction and also use own initiative
  • Caring, flexible, and trustworthy


Strengths and Weaknesses

Although I have not worked with horses in a professional capacity, I have been a horse owner for over 30 years and consider myself to be very competent.

I have also looked after many horses at Livery yards I have been at, and also house sat for many people.

I have some areas to improve on but am always open to development



I would require a live in position and will need to bring my partner, horse, small old dog, and rabbit with me so a private garden is required.
