An additional groom is needed to join our enthusiastic and hard working Event team! We have a very exciting string of young horses who are aiming for Internationals this year, and need another pair of hands – general yard duties including mucking out, grooming and taking care of top level event horses. There will be training on the job for skills such as mane and tail pulling and clipping, and opportunities to travel to competitions around the UK and abroad. A great opportunity to join a highly motivated and exciting team!
We have a purpose built yard in an area of outstanding natural beauty, and facilities that include an indoor barn, indoor school and outdoor school, horse walker and lunge pen. We are happy to accommodate someone with or without their own horse – and training is available for the latter option. (Apprentices also considered)
Candidate must have some experience of working on a yard. Above all must be hard working and enthusiastic.
Shared accommodation provided, on site.
Fantastic opportunity to gain experience at a top yard, working with knowledgable efficient and skilled people, and an exciting team of talented horses all striving for the top. Additionally, own horse welcome and training with 4* rider and UKCC Level coach provided as part of the programme. Good wage provided for someone with experience!
