Ref: JL81340

Job Description

Are you someone who likes to learn ‘hands-on’ and wants to become a top-class knowledgeable groom, expand your horsemanship knowledge, groundwork, and work horses to improve their way of going?  Are you under 18 with experience of horses and can ride a competition level horse with confidence?

As a young person is it sometimes hard to find a yard to do your apprenticeship and stay within the legal working hours, which is why we have created this role.  We already have one member of the team working this way, and  we find it works well.

This role is working in a competition livery yard run by a BS Accredited Coach.  The job involves all normal stable duties, the exercise of competition horses and travel to shows.  We offer comprehensive training for an Intermediate or Advanced Apprenticeship in Horse Care

You must have:  have some practical knowledge of stable management, horse health and the ability to ride fit powerful horses competently, hacking or in school. Most horses are 16 -16.1

You should: be happy to work within a team in a structured environment, prepared to work efficiently with safety in mind, like things to be organised, clean and tidy with attention to detail, have a keen interest in the training of horses both ridden and on the ground.

Our horses are treated as individuals and all our grooms must have their welfare at heart and be prepared to work with a level of detail when caring for the horses. Your role will require you to maintain the high standards of the yard if the Owner is not present.

This is position matches the hours that someone 18 and under can legally work – 4 days a week 7:30 – 17:30 live in or out.

You will work alongside other full-time grooms, who are hard-working, love horses and are easy to get along with.

Accommodation details

If you would prefer to live in, to help with travel arrangements, then we can help with that as we a guest room which would allow someone to stay over on their working days.  This is something we could talk about more at the interview.

Check out our website WWW.THUNDRY.CO.UK.  which shows pictures of the yard and the service we offer.  We have successfully trained a number of apprentices over the last 25+ years and use Haddon Training as our provider.

We would be open to an older person also.
