Olympic Belgian and Swedish eventers are looking for an experienced or trainee Groom/Rider to be a part of our team. We have 8 horses so it is a small private yard with a fun atmosphere. We have a big outdoor school, walker and a newly built accommodation for you!
You will be our only live-in groom, plus we have local freelance grooms who come in to cover time off and lend a hand during busy periods. We all pull together but there will be times that you’ll be in sole charge (although, this isn’t a truly sole charge role). We compete at National and International shows, for which you’ll be joining us as a Competition Groom!
We welcome applications from trainees and experienced groom/riders alike, but you will need to confident and competent in handling and riding big, fit competition horses and youngsters!
Although this is an Olympic level yard, it is a private yard and you will need to be comfortable around our family children, too.
Great new barn with two bedrooms, bathroom, kitchen and living room. It is fully equipped and there is a laundry room downstairs.
