Accomodation required if more than 30 miles from Kirtlington, OX5.
I have 10 GCSE's - Including an A in PE after a riding assessment. I don't have any further qualifications but I'm a well rounded individual who's well travelled & gained experience in lots of different work environments. I would be willing to do any extra training and take exams to further my career within the equestrian sector.
Duties of Current Occupation
I'm currently working in an office as a general administrator for a landscaping company. I'm looking for more of a challenge and I would love to be working outdoors with horses & furthering my skills.
Equine Work Experience
I grew up with horses and have been in the saddle since I can remember. I had my own horse growing up and we enjoyed hacking, jumping and a little bit of competing but sadly sold her when I was 18. When I was 20 I worked on a polo yard/sheep & cattle farm in Australia. Between me and a couple of other grooms our duties were to exercise & take good care of over 60 polo ponies and get them ready for a busy polo season. I was promoted to head groom to oversee everything and delegate without supervision. After the polo season started we were constantly on the road for 8 weeks moving to different competition grounds where it was my responsibility to make sure all the horses were healthy, happy, fit & well-fed. And of course match-ready whenever the time came. After the season finished and the horses were turned out, I helped out with early training and backing of young horses. I absolutely loved the time I spent working here and would love to get back into an equestrian profession.
I'm a fun, reliable & motivated girl. I love a challenge and take pride in absolutely everything I do. I work hard and don't mind getting my hands dirty. I'm a very fast learner and I'll try my hand at anything. I have been riding all my life and I'm a very confident rider but have sadly been out of the saddle for a year or so and I can't wait to get back into it. I've worked on a large polo yard in Australia and absolutely loved it.
Type of Ride Work
I like hacking, jumping, schooling & competing in low key SJ and Cross-Country competitions. My favourite is hacking out across open spaces, and I love sponsored rides. In a work environment I am confident doing sets on tricky horses whilst leading 2 or 3.
I have never been a big competitor but I used to enjoy taking part in local shows and cross-country events. My favourite outings are sponsored & endurance rides.
