Work Experience at Newtonmore Riding Centre, August 2009
Additional equine experience of having owned, loaned and shared horses over several years.
Working conscientiously to give all horses or ponies the best care, liaising with yard management and livery clients to ensure the smooth running of the yard. Keen to learn and improve constantly.
I have been responsible for the general exercise and hacking of dressage horses (competing at up to Prix St George and Inter I/II) in the past. I am competent at schooling less advanced horses on the flat and would consider myself to be working at Novice to Elementary level in dressage. Confident to ride a variety of different horses or ponies and work through any issues or quirks in a sympathetic manner. I also enjoy jumping at a low level. Some experience in the past of backing youngsters.
