Experienced Groom Seeking Work
I have grown up with horses and have a background working in livery, rescue and competition yards. I worked voluntarily at a show jumping stables up until school leaving age and then went on to manage a small livery yard alongside my Mum. I assisted in running this for three years as well as working on a competition yard and stud. I have worked on livery yards and I am currently working as a sole charge stable hand at a small rescue with stallions, foals, youngsters and donkeys. I have experience working with all types of horses including broodmares, competition horses, children's ponies and and I am a confident, capable rider. I have experience in re schooling, bringing on and starting young horses for different disciplines. I complete all tasks to a high standard and work well on my own as well as in a team. I have experience teaching and have also hosted pony clubs and small shows.
Stablehand - I am currently working on a small rescue yard with mainly stallions and colts. This role includes general stable duties and working with the horses. I also tend to donkeys, geese, chickens and ducks. I work completely on my own with the owner rarely being there and I also run the premises when they are on holiday.
