Beautiful yard adjoining the Cotswold area of outstanding natural beauty on the Gloucestershire Wiltshire border is seeking a full time thoroughbred Stud Hand. You would be required to work alongside an experienced stud manager at a small family owned commercial stud farm foaling at home and prepping foals for sale.
🙂 Thoroughbred Stud experience essential but less experienced candidates who are keen to learn or experienced people who can slot into the role would be considered 🙂
Stud has around ten permanent broodmares, their foals, a couple of yearlings etc. also have some resting racehorses which come for their holidays once or twice a year. The family also have two ponies that they may need occasional assistance with. Helpful if you are qualified and able to drive a small box but not essential, training can be arranged.
🙂 Caroline’s comments 🙂 This role would suit someone who understands life on a small TB stud – ie very busy times with foal prep etc and very quiet times when all the horses are turned out and staff have to be handy with a strimmer/mower instead! Best of facilities and a very professional but relaxed family environment.
Please call Caroline and the Team on 0203 006 5730 or email email@example.com
