Full-Time Yard Manager/Assistant Manager (trainee) required by a very successful Hanoverian dressage stud which breeds & produces quality British-bred dressage horses using top German bloodlines, is now looking for a hands-on team player to be the owner’s right-hand person running the yard on a daily basis. You will work closely within a Team and alongside vets, physios, farrier etc. and manage the work of the team. Would consider someone in a trainee yard management capacity and training will be provided.
Ideally, you will have experience of yard management, competition horses mares and young stock and you will be able to lunge/clip/turnout/handle young stock/muck out. Great opportunity for an existing Yard Manager or Grooms with basic performance horse or stud experience & who wish to have the best skills development training. Must be bright, have initiative and possess a good work ethic. Ideally interested in the world of breeding/performance horse training & development.
Whilst exercise riding could be available if you would like and are competent to do, this is primarily a non-riding role with the focus being on Yard/Team/Horse management.
🙂 Caroline’s comments 🙂 Now this is a position which is an outstanding career opportunity for someone who loves Dressage and wants to ‘step up’ and be involved in the management of a yard. Whilst you will be expected to roll up your sleeves and help with the day to day, you will work closely with the yard owner as her right-hand person to keep things running as they should whilst she there and when she is away. At the top of their game, the standards are high and you will have to reach those in a reasonable time, but there isn’t often an opportunity like this for advancement. If you are already doing the job at this level, then there is an opportunity to bring your skills to the table and add to this Team who are already enormously successful but poised for even greater things in the future!
