Ref: JL91385

 

*Live in or out * Own dog & horse welcomed *£400-£475pw negotiable *5/5.5/6 day week negotiable *Equally open to live out applicants with children and can accommodate school runs/bring them to work during school holidays etc. if required.

🙂 This is a great opportunity to work for a really flexible employer and to show what you can do in a key Head Groom role for a large, busy yard with lots going on  🙂

The yard has a mix of livery, private competition horses, and essentially riding school horses/ponies but with a difference, they all go out to compete with the yard’s clients!  They each have a key rider but are cared for by the team.

The owner currently has 2 broodmares and 2 foals with 2 foals due this season. The owner competes at British Showjumping – they are out training clients at both junior and senior shows weekly so the Head Person needs to be used to and capable of sole charge.

There will be a full team to manage as this is a well-staffed yard but each will muck out 7-9 stables each morning and as you will be required to muck in and out with your team, a good level of working fitness will be required. The staff team are friendly, they help one another out and they enjoy being managed efficiently by a good leader.

The yard is set across 4 American barns and the barns are split by purpose: Training, Livery, Livery & competition, and barn where horses are produced for clients/for the school.

All usual duties include:  prep and turn out (or delegation of) the competition horses/ ponies, ordering hay, feed, bedding, etc.

Accommodation is a one-bedroom maisonette but unfortunately, not suitable for a family with children but great for sole occupancy.

Facilities:

  • Set within acres of private parkland, fantastic range of indoor and outdoor riding facilities as well as access to local bridleways available to all clients.
  • Indoor Arena with viewing area, dressage mirrors, lights, and a full set of show jumps
  • Outdoor Arena with a mirror wall and lights
  • 10-acre jumping field with show jumps, dressage letters, and canter tracks
  • Lunge Pen
  •  5 x horse walker
  •  Wash Bays
  • Turn Out Paddocks
  • Club Room with Toilet/Shower/Kitchen
