I have a level 3 diploma in horse care and management
Duties of Current Occupation
My main duties are doing general yard duties making horses look presentable and exercising them. I do viewings sometimes for the horses in both winter and summer. I go to events and groom making sure the horses that are eventing are presentable
Equine Work Experience
I have a level 3 diploma is horse care and management. I currently event my horse to novice level in British eventing and have been riding my whole life. I currently work on and eventing yard with 31 horses so working at a fast pace in key.
I have led a team on multiple occasions. My main experience is retraining horses ready to go out eventing. I make sure that every single horse is turned out to a high standard I can muck out fast and then make the yard look tidy and neat
Type of Ride Work
I have mainly ridden sport horses. We have horses that have come in as four year olds from Ireland and I have produced them. I do both flatwork, jumping and hunting. At work I ride lots on green horses that are now coming up the levels.
I have both been a groom at competitions and compete myself. In the mornings I give the horses their feed give them a hot cloth if they have any dirt on them. I then get them ready to travel at the event I brush them over tack them up and do the finishing touches which include putting hoof oil on checking that all the plaits look equal and brushing through the tail.
