Looking for an enthusiastic groom for the 2021 Polo Season and potentially beyond, either part time or full time. Polo experience not necessary but strong riding is as we have some younger ones.
Full time would be 6 days a week with Mondays off but happy to split the job between two people if preferred or might suit a couple. We also get extra help for chukkas/matches (or get in touch if this might be of interest instead!) To start in March. Based at Silver Leys polo club in Hertfordshire. Loads going on at the club so a really fun place to be – it’s very laid back and there’s a club house serving food every day etc.
We have 8 horses, half in during the day and half at night. Role would involve general stable work and exercise (usually take them out as two lots of four), then grooming for chukkas and matches etc.
Mostly just weekend matches and weekday chukkas so pretty relaxed and fun. Great hacking and opportunity for chukkas and/or polo/schooling lessons + stick and ball if interested!
My partner is an equine vet so is happy to teach veterinary skills again if of interest.
HGV massive bonus but not essential.

Strong rider – as mentioned doesn’t have to be in polo but we’ve got some young TBs being retrained as polo ponies so need someone with good riding experience.
Ideally not looking to provide accommodation but could potentially look into options if needed.
Wage dependent on whether full time or part time and level of experience.
