Equine Work Experience
I currently have my own horse, I enjoy hacking, pleasure rides and jumping lessons. I hope to get out competing at some low level show jumping later this year.
Previous experience includes time working at a local charity that provides riding as a sport for local people as well as being a therapy centre for people with disabilities and behavioral challenges. My work here involved assisting with lessons, tacking up, untacking, turnout and all elements of horse care.
Growing up involved many short breaks to a family friend with a stud farm(Welsh sections C's and D's) in Wales, where I helped turn out and bring in of foals and mares. Had the opportunity to ride young ponies being broken in and help with mucking out including the stallions boxes.
Type of Ride Work
I brought on my own pony from being professionally backed, working through his issues and building confidence together for hacking and jumping.
I have a basic level of schooling knowledge and can leg yield, turno on the forehand, back up etc. I am confident cantering in the arena including circles. Goals include developing a strong flying change and counter canter.
I have been support crew for my older sister on an endurance ride, have been to a few pleasure rides myself. I have competed my coloured pony in hand and under saddle a few times.
