Equine Work Experience
Riding horses for 12 years, competed regularly as a junior in a discpline called mounted skill at arms, which involves riding with one hand at a full gallop whilst using a sword or lance to hit various targets either on the ground or hanging overhead. Due to this, I am confident about riding at speed and with one hand, and handling excited horses both on foot and under saddle. I ride both of my horses regularly at home, in a number of disciplines, namely schooling and showjumping/gridwork. I was also responsible for the re-schooling of a livery horse there who went on to be sold to a very happy client. My own horse tore a suspensory ligament in 2016 and as such I have gained skills in bandaging horses for both remedial and exercise purposes, as well as hand walking a lame horse on box rest. I played polo against university teams for 18 months so have experience with polo ponies under saddle.
