Experience with Horses

I have been involved with horses since i was 6 years old and started riding at 8. I have helped out within riding schools through out my teenage years and was offered to ride/train at age 16 in Tenerife at a riding school which i turned down as i had just bought my first horse. I have assisted in breaking in/producing young horses, training bad behaviours out of horses and just general exercising horses for other people.

No horse with a bad habit phases me, I’m happy to put the time into a horse that needs some work and also ride a schoolmaster. I have had a range of horses on loan from ex BSJA, eventers, showjumpers, riding school ponies, youngsters etc. I currently own a Welsh D Mare who originally had a very severe bolting issue, we now happily compete at XC, showjumping and trying our hand at eventing too.

I used to jump up to 1m 30 with my previous mare, due to my current pony still gaining experience we only ride at 90cm/1m max at the moment, height and types of jump doesn’t phase me. I am very keen at cross country and found i absolutely love it. I also very much enjoy schooling to a very high quality too.



Key Skills

  • working in a team
  • working on my own
  • time management
  • handle young horses
  • handle difficult horses
  • all weather rider



Strengths and Weaknesses

• What do you most enjoy about working with horses? Everything, from seeing their faces in the stable first thing in the morning to saying goodnight to them, the absolute reward it is when you feel progress happening with them


• Is there anything you’d like to improve? More skills, i am always keen to learn new ways of riding etc


• Why should employers consider you above any other job seeker? I am extremely hard working, whatever the hours or days i will commit to them, i have such a high standard of care even with mucking out and keeping the yard tidy.



• What would you like to do or gain in your next job?  The opportunity to show my riding and improve it too. Turn my passion into my career


• Do you need accommodation? If within scotland then no


• Do you have any special requirements for any animals you wish to bring with you? none


• Do you have any ongoing commitments? Just my 1 horse i own, a welsh d mare


• Do you have any holidays booked that an employer needs to know of? no
