I have owned horses since I was a young child, competing at small local shows and hunting. I worked on a small hunting yard for the upkeep of my first pony and my current horse. Duties included turning out, grooming and tacking up big, fit hunters as well as general yard duties such as mucking out to a high standard and poo picking daily. More recently I have moved to a new yard with privately owned horses, as well as hacking, schooling and taking my own cob to small shows I have ridden horses for people at my yard, including riding and bringing on young and green horses as well as horses with behavioural issues including bolting and rearing. I regularly clip and trim my own well behaved cob and have fully clipped and trimmed a more nervous young horse recently. I can lunge competently and have recently begun to long line.
Riding and bringing on young and green horses
I have ridden a wide range of horses including big, fit hunters, well behaved all-rounder and more complicated rides including young and green horses, as well as helping overcome ridden problems including rearing, napping and bolting. I can jump, ride cross country and show jumps both at home and at small local shows and hunt. I have not had the opportunity to train in dressage riding though would be very interested in developing in this area.
