A Foundation Degree in Equine Science from Warwickshire College.
Currently completing a Foundation Degree in Equine Science at Warwickshire College. Groom when needed for The Devil's Horsemen Stunt Team currently working on Game of Thrones. Typing, filing, answering the phone, sending emails.
I have been riding for 28 years, from starting at a riding school in beginners to present with my own horse. I would say I'm a quiet and sympathetic rider. I mainly show my own horse but will try other diciplines too. I have worked part-time in riding schools and livery yards and I currently work part-time as a groom on Game of Thrones with The Devil's Horsemen.
I can muck out, groom, tack up, clip, plait, follow a feed/diet schedule and I am good with sick horses and am able to follow the vet's instructions. I am also able to use basic first aid on a horse and I know when to call a vet if it is more serious than I can manage. I am capable of lunging a horse and I am sensible when hacking out, I have passed my BHS Riding and Road Safety exam.
I am good with horses and will treat any horse under my care as if it was my own. I can work on my own and within a team. I work quickly and to a high standard. When I turn a horse out for a show it is to a high standard also. I have my own transport, horsebox and towing licence. Although my location is based in Northern Ireland I am seeking employment in England to further my knowledge and experience of working within the equine industry. I am available to start work from 14th August 2018.
I can show jump up to 1m, I can ride preliminary dressage tests, I mainly show my Thoroughbred in Racehorse to Riding Horse Ireland classes, I have competed in event classes but not for many years and I have tried endurance riding also.
My own horse and I were Down Royal League Reserve Champions 2017 with Racehorse to Riding Horse Ireland. I groom for a friend when she shows her Irish Draught - Balmoral Show 2017 - 2nd place in the 4 year old class and Reserve Champion. Dublin Show 2017 - 2nd place in the Light Weight Hunter class. Balmoral Show 2018 - 2nd place in the 5 year old and over class and Reserve Champion.
