  • A very friendly place to be, very nice staff with a lovely environment. I enjoyed working here for work experience for a month and improving my english in the same time.

  • I spent three months working at Howletts Hall in the summer of 2011, and I would definitely recommend this yard as all my experiences there were wholly positive. I received useful and informative advice on all aspects of grooming, horse care and general yard maintenance, and also enjoyed some valuable training in both jumping and flatwork. I was encouraged to develop as a rider and a groom in a friendly, relaxed atmosphere and was treated like a member of the family while living with the other grooms and employers. Overall, the people are lovely, the place was great and I would definitely go back!

  • Small Hunter Rider/Working Student

    'Miami. Fantastic position for petite rider! Are you 5'3 or under. SMALL and "tough" enough to train pony hunters. Prefer someone who has shown while growing up in pony hunter divisions .This is a great position if you want to learn to become an Instructor/Trainer. Opportunity to learn with lessons from a TOP "A" Show Trainer. NOT a temporary position but a position with a possible ADVANCEMENT. Live-in. Regrettably no pets. Ambitious people only please!'
