Taking care of horses (feeding/cleaning/trimming), working my own horses (working equitation), practicing stunts (mounted archery/mounted combat/trickriding/roping), horse trekking, event organizing
Grew up taking care of horses at our facility at home (Kansas/Switzerland/UK), did Swiss military as pack train specialist (basically think horse trekking with guns and more yelling). Worked as a ranchhand at a breeding facility in South Dakota. I work and train horses at my parents facility with an eye towards stuntwork and working equitation.
The last three years I've been the main organizer of the Rossfechten Symposium in Barisis France, an event for reconstructing historical mounted combat from original medieval sources.
Grooming, Horsecare, Working equitation, Swordfighting on Horseback, mounted archery, Roping, Trickriding, Horse Trecking, Stud Handler, Trainer
My riding foundation is in working equitation (american ranchworking in the Brannaman tradition), but I've also done some classical dressage and jumping. I do stuntwork for reenactment shows and for film so I also practice and teach mounted swordsmanship and plains Indian horse archery, I also do trickriding and roping. I have experience with studs and youngstock and halter breaking etc.
I'd really looking forward to working for a Polo team or Facility.
