*Salary very generous & negotiable for experience plus accommodation  *5/5.5 or 6 day week also negotiable *Pets and horse welcome *Partner considered

Experienced Groom required for a young, ambitious & competitive family. Must be an experienced SJ Groom who is capable of some mentoring as/when but who will also fit in and get along with the team, many of whom we have placed so know this to be a good employer and a great place to work!

Need someone who has groomed at international level ideally in the home role and as a show groom so that they really understand what needs to be taken into consideration for the horses when they are at home, away at shows and in between and are really able to lead a team on the set up to going away,

Must understanding the withdrawal dates for drugs, be able to work with vets to ensure the horses are in the optimum condition for the competitions, understand what is needed with the paperwork prior to travelling .

Often be in a situation getting 10 horses ready to leave for abroad, with another 15 to work that day and need someone who can pull everything together.

You should be willing to travel home and abroad (amount away negotiable) and HGV ideal, but not essential. 18 quality jumping horses and other young stock destined for a career in SJ/jumping. All are kept in top accommodation to the highest standards. Ideally, but not essentially you will be a capable and confident Rider

Please note the following:

  • 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 a reasonable speed as the yard has a  lot of competition horses that need clipping regularly so this can be 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 consists of a 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 14+) who are very keen indeed. The girls all do BSJ and have represented children on horses and ponies at European level this year. They are the focus of the role and all activities that go on with both yards will underpin their equestrian dreams.
