  • Happy to muck in and muck out

    Although my CV is very varied I enjoy working in the horse environment and during my GAP year in Australia I travelled to 4 farms in the outback, and worked with horses/sheep/cows daily. Currently I need to work in the Somerset area for the time being however this will change in the future. Although I am not looking for a live in place at the moment I may be in the future. I enjoy working on my own or within a team. I am a quick learner and happy to broaden my equine experience.
