We are looking for an enthusiastic groom or groom/rider to join our established team. 
This role requires you to be efficient and thorough with all yard duties and conscientious in the care of all our horses. You will need to be able to maintain high standards, be able to work in a small team of people, happy to help our senior rider with the young horses as they start to work and to be confident enough to hack out on the recently backed youngsters once they are ready. 
Attention to detail, good time management and a genuine love for horses are important personal qualities we value. This is a happy yard and the horses are well behaved but this can only be achieved through kind, consistent handling from birth, so part of this job is handling the foals and youngstock, so they are relaxed about having foal slips on and being handled for foot trimming, vet etc: 
In addition, you will need to travel to competitions with our senior rider to help with the horses ie grooming, tacking-up/un-tacking, washing off and checking the horses over once they've finished.
Everyone works 5 days a week with 2 consecutive days off each week, although we might need to vary the days very occasionally if there are competitions at the weekends, 28 days paid annual leave, warm accommodation in double glazed, centrally heated flats. 
Friendly pets are welcome
