Ref: JL53406


*Liveout position *£500pw neg. *Dog welcomed *Some flexibility on hours and days

Experienced & flexible Groom/Exercise Rider required to care for 2 horses and a pony currently in quarantine but arriving on a family estate in Surrey in September 2019. (You will need to be aware of careful management required in this situation ).

All duties required to a high standard. Knowledge of  first aid helpful. This is a role with some flexibility of hours around horse’s routine and family requirements but clearly weekend work, especially during holidays will be required.  Family live in London and Surrey base is mostly used at weekends. Estate manager employed to do all yard maintenance so this is purely a horse role to support the children and family in their equestrian pursuits whilst maintain happy, healthy equines! You will need to be able to fulfill your role with integrity and discretion. 

The family have two children/2 horses and a pony :

  • A daughter (6 years) who does some PC activities.Her pony can be lunged but just needs to be ‘ticked over’ when daughter is not around. Role to involve teaching/assisting and general equine mentoring of a young child on her journey with horses. (qualifications nice but not essential).
  • Son 14, at boarding school but has a horse he rides at weekends (mostly hacking).
  • Third horse is a large hack who is mostly a family pet

🙂 Caroline’s comments 🙂 This is a fabulous, well paid opportunity for someone who likes working under their own steam but also enjoys involvement with a nice family and their horses. Hours/days can be flexible when family not around but must be an element of ‘on call’ when they are around and cheery, ‘can’ do person required for this.

FACILITIES: Arena being built. Excellent 20 acre estate facilities with good hacking and traditional yard
