Family Groom/Exercise Rider Dorset 620 views18 applications

Ref: JL44270

*£350pw *35 hours week  *5 day week *No accommodation or bills charged *wi fi available  * Contributions to riding training with top riders if interested *Own dog and horse welcomed.

Friendly family who have 2 family horses, 1 pony club pony who hunts & 2 event horses are looking for someone to join them who has worked with performance horses and is a capable rider (with good hands and an independent seat) for exercising the sharper event horses. Should also be able to lunge.

All duties are required to a high standard and whilst the owner & family are hands on,  you must be capable of sole charge. Horses well being a priority so whilst performance horse experience and very high standards essential, you must be keen to manage much loved equines in a relaxed family environment.

You should be licensed and able to drive a small 2 horse 3.5t lorry.

Employer enjoys lower level Dressage and Daughter (17) currently does Eventing BE100. You should be therefore capable of show turnout and willing to go to competitions etc as/when.

Good facilities : 20×40 Dressage arena, hot walker all mod cons. On chalk so turnout ideal for variety of weathers.

Small studio flat available, nicely done with a terrace. Extra living room available for warmer months. Accommodation may not be big enough for live in partner unfortunately.

🙂 Caroline’s comments 🙂 This is a role which would suit someone who does not mind time on their own and who has had enough of the pressure of a competition yard. You will need to be happy to do family hacking with the employer and help prepare a pony for hunting. They are networked with some really good yards so have taken on the standards required in those environments. 

If you are not from the area, although you will be on their own quite, this is  a busy household and there are many opportunities through hunting and yards close by to make friends and the owner is very personable and would facilitate introductions if  required.
