    Looking for friendly enthusiastic live in groom to join our team. Fantastic opportunity for the right person. Plenty of riding available including lessons and hunting. Yard set in beautiful location with accommodation on site included as part of package.

Wexford based Riverlodge Eventing is a Growing and Vibrant Eventing yard and we require an experienced, dedicated and dependable competition groom, with yard management skills. Our string of horses travel to national and cross channel events on a weekly basis and are required to be turned out to a very high standard. We believe that winning results start with good stable management, therefore getting the right groom is very important to us. Someone who is equally as ambitious as we are and hungry for success. This person should be self motivated, responsible and serious about a career in the business at a top level. Our groom will be the back bone of the yard, pushing forward from behind the scenes and will travel to events with us to provide support while we are away. Horses are our life. We are focused and passionate about what we do and need someone who is up to the challenge.
