Description

Full-time live-in or live-out groom / rider / working couple required on a four-horse dressage yard near Canterbury, Kent. Role includes all normal yard duties, plus riding - the horses are working up to Advanced Medium level dressage, so applicants must be competent in the saddle. Must be happy to work on a sole-charge basis, able to work to high standards without supervision and turnout horses well - including clipping, plaiting and bandaging. Must be competent handling big, fit horses on the ground and in the saddle. Communication skills are key, as the yard owners work away a lot, and need to be kept up to date. If a working couple role, there is a possibility of the other person gaining employment through the yard owners’ saddlery company in the production team. No previous experience required for this role, and full training provided. Five-day week, including some weekends. Hours roughly 8am - 430pm. Self-contained en-suite on-site accommodation provided if required - live-out candidate also welcome if local. Own horse welcome, prefer no dog. Top package including competitive wage, pension and 28 days paid holiday per annum. Suit an experienced groom and competent rider seeking a long-term role on a small yard with a top quality team of horses.
