Warwickshire – Head Groom/Yard Manager (border of Oxfordshire and Northamptonshire). 411 views2 applications

Ref: JL88503

*Accommodation available or live out considered * Own dog welcomed *Top-end pay for a very experienced person with an HGV £500pw +accomm could be available, but the package is negotiable according to experience.

Situated in 180 acres of beautiful countryside on the border of Oxfordshire and Northamptonshire with some of the best facilities in the country, a talented Rider with a passion for horses and the discipline of Eventing is now looking for a similarly dedicated Head Groom/ Yard Manager for the next eventing season 2022 and beyond. Previous experience due to the fast pace and nature of the job is important, although some training up is available for exceptionally motivated candidates with solid skills in place.

With a dedicated support team and a staff of 3, (plus the Rider and their second Rider), the horses kept on the yard range from unbroken 3yo to 5* campaigners, (as well as sales horses and schooling liveries),  giving quite a lot of daily variety.

This position requires someone who can oversee all the horses but the focus of this role is 8 talented event horses. They are competing all over the country on a weekly basis and all horses are produced with the future in mind and with their best interests at the heart.

Competence, confidence, and common sense are of course all required but a lighthearted, fun individual would fit in perfectly. High standards, conscientiousness, and attention to every little detail are essential as the top care for horses is paramount. The crucial parts of this role involve:

  • Organised and structured day-to-day running of the yard of up to 20 horses, two riders, and other team members. Logistics and ordering for the yard – coordinating farriers / vets / physios / saddlers / feed etc.
  • https://www.equicty.com/ is a software package used for managing the logistics so either experience of this kind of thing is desirable, but at the very least an open mind to its use alongside the old ‘whiteboard’ approach is required
  • Turning out to the highest of standards including plaiting, trimming, clipping, show turn out etc.
  • HGV would be a bonus but a clean driving license and ability to drive a 3.5t essential.
  • Exercise riding is available but this is not a riding position essentially. A nonriding person is OK.
