Staffordshire. Experienced Groom – Family SJ yard. 1517 views43 applications

Ref: JL54622


 *Salary IRO £400/£450 depending on experience *Own horse and pets welcomed *Partner welcomed

This vacancy is a lovely and rare opportunity for an experienced Groom who combines the experience of working on a family yard, with performance horse know how ideally gained within a SJ/jumping environment. Must have experience of youngstock on the ground, some stud work ideal but not essential. Must be capable of sole charge. Please note the following:

  • You will need to be flexible to work 5.5 – 6 days a week
  • You will need to be flexible enough to handle an environment where things change regularly as it is a fast paced, rapidly expanding scenario. You would need to take this in your stride and it would be ideal if you saw this as invigorating and exciting rather than a nuisance!
  • You will have to clip a lot of horses at reasonable speed as yard has a  lot of competition horses in that need clipping regularly so this is a big part of the job
  • Must have be able to organise the running of a busy yard on a day to day basis and ideally have prior experience of this

The family have a home yard, which houses 18 quality jumping horses  (currently managed by 2 FT/ 1pt & the Yard manager/ trainer) and  another close by with a various assortment of broodmares and young stock, (hopefully destined for a career in SJ/jumping.) You will have sole charge of the second yard.

The family consists of non-riding dad who is looking forward to spending more time with his family as part of their journey, mum who is an experienced horsewoman but now prefers just to hack/school a little and 3 daughters (aged 12-15 years old) who are very keen indeed. The girls all do BSJ and want to eventually do European tours & be on YR teams. They are the focus of the role and all activities that go on with both yards, will underpin these equestrian dreams.

Please call Caroline & the Team on 0203 006 5730 or email info@carolinecarterrecruitment.com
