Wiltshire – Yard Manager/Groom/Rider.(Family yard – BE100/novice and leisure riding). 2072 views12 applications

Ref: JL84802


*Up to £26K pa depending on experience *Own horse DIY livery with all year turnout and stable available & paid for by employer *1 bed lodge apartment available with private parking * Well behaved dog welcome *Regular training with various trainers from across the UK

  • Must be light enough to hack ponies – decent schooling rider ideal but must at least be able to hack competently.
  • Some eventing background at some point essential

Small, private, family yard with  2 x 14.2, 1 x 15.2, 1 ponies, and 1 x 16.2 plus 2 x pretty much-retired ponies, one of whom will be going on loan. All at BE 100 /Novice level and a couple of live-out semi-retirees, now seek a new Yard Manager/Groom/Rider.

This busy family has a competitive 15-year-old riding at BE100 but with ambitions, a 20-year-old riding at Novice level, and a completely uncompetitive 22-year- old who likes to hack or school when home.

They are now looking for a child/young person-friendly adult to live in or out and who would ideally be full-time. The owner has a busy business so if you are able to do a bit of admin/bit of light gardening and the odd school run then that’s great, but the horses are the main part of this role. Help from other stable hands who muck out and poo pick about 5 times per week,

For competing and training, (Once or twice a month,) you must have a clean driving license to drive a 3.5t Theault.

Clipping, plaiting and all competition preparation will be down to you and you will be taking the girls to train and competitions, helping with warming up, providing encouragement and companionship. Someone happy to coach/teach within this context would be very useful.

One of the ponies has minor tendon/high suspensory issues and the vet advises that they shouldn’t really be ridden by anyone over 9.5 stone.  Good rider,to at least BE Novice level ideally, and lungeing ability vital.

Good DIY livery with services and professional facilities next door. You would have full access to the employer’s facilities if you need them too.
