London, nr Barnet – Part Time Groom/Rider (optional) needed for Private Family Yard 162 views

Ref: JL96894

Job Description

A small yard with 3 horses which may increase is looking for a sole charge independent groom for predominantly weekend work, plus holiday and extra work available. The work is predominantly alone, there are other workers here who are friendly though not familiar with horses! This is a lovely easy paced job in a quiet part of London with well-behaved horses and a competitive wage.

The ideal candidate will have experience of working alone following the normal yard routine while also being independent to make decisions for the best welfare of the horse- for example calling the vet, deciding treatment for any small injury sustained etc. Having some experience of sole charge and responsibility is a must.

There is opportunity for riding. There is a dressage bred gelding, a welsh A pony and an older semi-retired mare. You do not have to be able to ride, but being able to lunge/long rein and work a horse from the ground would be an advantage.

There are daily tasks such as poo picking, cleaning the tack room and other small management jobs such as this. On occasion there may be appointments with the farrier/vet/physio scheduled so some degree of organisation to arrange that the horses are in would be useful. You may also be asked to tack up for the owners or instructors for lessons.

There is some degree of flexibility as you would be working closely with the manager of the yard who can accommodate some changes. There is also holiday cover available and extra days for circumstances such as show days. If you are able to drive a horse box this would be useful, but not essential.

Minimum Requirements

Experience in working alone and a self-starter.


Accommodation details




Competitive hourly rate of pay.  Lovely surroundings.
