I previously worked at Eastlake Riding Stables for 3 years where I was ride leader and had sole charge as well as being responsible for others on the yard. I lead rides from 2 - 15 people, with people of all experiences including adults and children that had never ridden before. I can confidently ride one and lead one. I studied Level 2 Equine care and management for one year at Bicton College and passed with distinction. I have just completed a level 3 advanced apprenticeship as head girl at Downe Farm Event Centre for Tim Cheffings 4 Event Rider. The main duties include: Feeding, haynets, mucking out, skipping out, sweeping, general yard tidying, flatwork, hacking, jump work (showjump and XC), grooming, rugging, bringing in/turning out, plaiting, bandaging, bathing.
