I consider myself to be a hardworking conscientious, trustworthy individual who enjoys working as part of a team however using my own initiative is a key skill that I have acquired throughout my working life. From a young age I have been competing (county level, Royal International), riding and caring for my own and other horses due to my parents being equine enthusiasts and owning a producing yard. During this time I knew that I wanted to pursue a career in the equine industry. Following this I am a committed and driven BSC Equine Science with rehabilitation Graduate with a sound understanding of horses and how they work utilising sound organisation skills.
