Saturday Groom required by Show Jumping Family in Oxford 213 views

Job Description

Looking for a cheery, competent groom to help us on Saturdays. We compete BS most weekends & have a family yard at home with 5 ponies; looking for a part time groom to help Saturdays.  Ideally (though not essential) could do some stay-away shows with us during the year – maybe 4-5 across the year, usually over 3-4 days over a weekend (e.g. POYS, Home Pony, Nationals etc).

Role would be to come and help as a second groom, and to provide adhoc holiday cover, and would cover show support & show prep, help with taking ponies/kids to SJ training, tack cleaning and yard duties, some exercising (lunging or riding if small enough), plaiting occasionally.

Generally on Saturdays it would be about 8 hours if we are at a show; if not, around 5-6 hours for training, show prep, yard duties. We are a happy, busy horsey family with 2 children aged 10 & 11, so someone who likes horses, dogs, children etc and can fit in, is essential!

Minimum Requirements

Experienced with horses; ideal if prior experience in competing or as a show / competition groom, but not essential if willing to learn. Must be reliable, with good timekeeping, & able to drive with own car. Ideally can drive a small horsebox (3.5t or 4.5t) or willing to learn (on car licence). Can lunge, clean tack, load, support at shows getting ponies ready etc. We are looking for someone to join us long-term to cover Saturdays ideally.
