Very experienced former competition groom looking for slightly quieter position. I have a wide range of experience (please see CV), am highly motivated with very high standards. Now seeking a slightly quieter role, possibly part-time.
I have over 30 yrs experience in the Equine industry, as a groom/rider on both competition (eventing & dressage) & family yards, working with a wide range of horses & ponies taking part in a variety of disciplines.
I specialised in remedial schooling for 15 yrs, running my own yard for part of this time.
More recently I have been Yard Manager & Assistant Trainer to a well known Classical Seat Trainer.
I am a quiet, confident rider (classically trained in recent years) accustomed to handling a variety of horses, including mares, foals & stallions.
I am highly organised & motivated & strive to lead by example.
I have all the usual grooming skills plaiting, clipping, trimming, bandaging, turning out to a high standard. I like to provide a high standard of stable management.
I have a clean driving licence, & drive a 7.5 tonne horsebox as well as being able to tow a trailer.
I have been a follower of IH for over 20 years & am an accredited Enlightened Equitation Teacher (Level 4) & have 35 years of teaching experience.
I also have business, admin & retail experience.
I was recently made redundant & am currently doing some freelance work.
