We need a really experienced groom to look after 4 horses at home - (eventers and hunters). We are keen amateurs and do lots of training, outings, lower lever competing. We need someone who is experienced eventing and hunting and who would enjoy running a small private yard in a friendly environment.
All yard duties required from mucking out to running the diary and calling farrier, dentist, back person etc etc. Driving essential. We need someone super organised.
We have beautiful farm, XC course, grass arenas and Martin Collins sand arena being built.
The most crucial thing about this job is that you would need to enjoy being sole charge of a small set up. Enthusiasm is vitally important.
V different from a professional yard.
Its a good job if you want to run your own show on a smaller scale. Our current brilliant groom (who is now leaving after 3 years) came from running a professional event yard as he wanted a less intense environment and that has worked really well for all of us.
Required Key Skills
No accommodation although we would consider renting local accommodation for the right person.
Good pay plus bonus
