I have been around horses from a very young age and have been riding for approx 27yrs. I started by helping out at the stables I rode at and then progressed to working there. I have completed 2 Monty Roberts horsemanship courses by a certified instructor. During the time I have been at this stables I have been giving lessons to children and adults of all disapplines. I have also been giving one on one lessons to some children who have special needs and found this hugely rewarding. I also have a lot of experience with dealing with pony camp for chldren of all ages and abilities. Where we taught everything from stable safety to how to dismantle and reassemble a bridle, and all the safety aspects of being around and on a horse from tacking to mounting safely to leading riding and dismounting safely and properly.
I would include working with children and the disabled as one of my specialities. l have very good main and tail plaiting skills. Also working with nervous horses and people. I have experience working with foreign students teaching them to ride and learn the language.
I have experience with general riding such as lessons flat work and jumping but not as much jumping in the last few years. I have a lot of experience with trail rides and trekking. I am one of the guides for the 5 day trails we offer at the yard I curently work at.
I have some experience doing in hand classes but most of my experience with shows is as the groom from the yard. I do all jobs from washing the horses the day before to plaiting them for the show and getting tack ready and cleaned. Also getting the rider ready.
