“Highly commended” Riding Centre (BHS approved riding school, livery yard and BHS Where to Train centre based in Winkfield, Berkshire) is now looking for a groom to join our team.
We are looking for a confident, proactive, hardworking and efficient individual with a keen eye for detail; able to work independently and in a team. You will need to be a good rider and keen to learn but may well want to specialise in horse care rather than instruction.
You would work a 5 day week including at least one weekend day, maybe both. You will be involved in all aspects of the yard, both horse care and supporting our team of instructors. Exercising will be a part of your daily role, therefore you will need to be a good rider, at least BHS Stage 3 or equivalent standard; and also able to lunge.
As a BHS Where to Train Centre, we take your development seriously and will support you financially with exams and ensure you get the training you need. In return you will receive a competitive salary based on your experience and qualifications, 28 days paid holiday and support with your ongoing development.
