Yard Manager/Marketing Manager/Rider

Relevant experience

Let me tell you a little about myself; and hope that you read this before reviewing my CV!

I am likely older than your average head-girl applicant....eeekkk...35 years of it.
But I am highly energetic, and between one way and the other, during the past 6/7 years, I have found myself returning again and again to horses.
Perhaps most relevant is my time with Sarah Ennis. I started at Stellor through attending one of Sarah's clinics; then moved my horse at the time into livery at her yard; then worked a summer with her; worked informally throughout the subsequent 2 years with her, after I finished my day job school teaching; and eventually ended up living at the yard. You can of course call Sarah and check all of this.
I got a lot of exposure to the Young Event Horse Classes, frequently grooming for Sarah at them; learned and undertook the daily management of event horses; and of course I got to event myself on my horse at the time.

I left Meath last November, having decided that school teaching was not for me, and moved to the West of Ireland. Since the early summer, I have been riding horses for a sales yard, specialising in overgrown Connemaras for the UK market. I am a good pilot, in particular with getting a young horse going on the flat.

My experience with horses has been organic; alas, I never had the opportunity to attend Pony Club etc... so have been learning on the job! But I am a good worker. I am smart, punctual, energetic, reliable and loyal.
Show me how to do things and I will ensure they get done.

I have a lot of experience mentoring and guiding trainees; from my time as a scuba-diving instructor;. I feel that yard management/event organisation/marketing management/sales are all things I could do well.
