Equine Work Experience
I have worked for Redwings Horse Sanctuary and I have volunteering work experience with horses.
Due to working for Redwings I have experience with horses that can be aggressive and unsure about how to interact with humans. At Redwings I had to train horses for any basic task from just being touched and lead to lungeing.
Type of Ride Work
I have ridden a good variety of horses from the lazier plod along types to nervous and/or sharp horses.
I am comfortable at flat work and jumping up to 75 cm. I haven't done any hunting before. When I first started riding I was taught by western riding coaches and I only started english about 4 years ago.
I have worked for Redwings where I gained experience in working with rescued horses and I got to train them for basic tasks such as picking feet out tying up wearing rugs etc.
I have not worked on a competition yard before and I haven't had the chance to compete much in the past.
