Hunt stables in the heart of the Gloucestershire hunting countryside are looking for an experienced groom/rider to join the team for the 2018/19 Season (and possibly beyond!).
This can be either a seasonal or permanent position and the ideal candidate would be someone with a few years relevant experience and would be best suited to someone who can work well within a team but also has the initiative to see when jobs need to be done.
Candidates must be used to turning Horses out to a high standard and can plait,clip and trim. Good stable management knowledge is also essential as must be able to help teach our trainees.
Applicants must be reliable and enthusiastic and able to handle large fit horses on this busy yard of hunters.
Duties will include:
- Preparing and riding horses at exercise.
- Turning Horses out to a high standard on hunting days (Ideally able to plait,clip and trim and capable of teaching these skills.)
- Horses after care on hunting days with attention to detail.
- All usual daily yard duties
This is a fabulous opportunity for a competent rider who is able to school Horses on the flat and over fences; for the right candidate there is also the possibility of evolving this role into that of an assistant head person.
This job offers a competitive wage and shared accommodation (all associated bills paid); working a 6day week during Hunt Season and 5.5day weeks outside of Season.
Experience of working with hunters would be an advantage.
Shared accommodation in a large flat above the stables.
Regretfully there is no room for own horse/pets.
All bills covered for accommodation.
