My up to date CV
I’m an enthusiastic and hard working individual with many years of experience dealing with a variety of horses and atmospheres, from riding school through to competition. I have been working full time in the equine industry for the past 8 months, however have around 10 years experience with horses, from lessons, volunteering, college and also ownership. Previously I have competed in a variety of dressage, showing and eventing and have also played a groom's role at these events so am used to plaiting and general turnout. I always take great pride in my work and my real passion for horses always helps me work hard to ensure they are kept to the highest of standard, whether it be in the stable, field or competition, both care and turnout wise.
I have completed my level 3 Extended Diploma in Horse Management and have also done my BHS Progressive Riding Test. More recently I was working towards taking some lessons at a riding school, gaining experience and tips of teaching, with the hopes to help give me skills to further down the line take more BHS exams.
In terms of exercise, I have a lot of experience with lunging and am comfortable and knowledgeable on many of the training aids. Riding wise, I am a quiet rider who always tries to ride the horse to get the best out of them and have a basic knowledge of riding on the flat including lateral work. I’m always keen to learn and will take every opportunity to expand my knowledge and experience.
Along with this, I have experience with sole care of horses and have often been trusted with taking care of other peoples when they have been away on holiday, to which on return they have been impressed with the level of care for their horse. I am competent at working both in a team and individually and am capable of using my own initiative and working confidently through tasks.
Was previously working in a riding school carrying out day to day horse care tasks and assisting with lead rein lessons. I also started to teach some lessons under instruction with the outlook towards taking my BHS exams. I unfortunately had to leave the job due to Covid.
