I will be coming to New Zealand 1/2/18 for a year on a working holiday visa. I grew up riding show jumpers & eventers from age 7-15. I spent the last couple months in County Wexford, Ireland getting experience working in point to point yards. Prior to that I worked at two barns in California, the first specialized in young event horses and the second focused on natural horsemanship and starting youngstock. I am looking for a fulltime stablehand position where I will have to opportunity to work hard, learn, and most importantly improve my riding ability as I intend to pursue a career in racing as an exercise rider. What I lack in experience (insofar as racing is concerned) I believe I can make up for with a good hard work ethic, excellent social skills and a sunny, easy going personality. I am strong, lightweight and athletic. References available upon request. I look forward to hearing from you!
I am a tidy, detail oriented person who learns quickly and works well in both solo and team environments. I am easy going, calm, and get along with most people.
The majority of my riding experience is in eventing and riding show jumpers but the primary purpose of my time in NZ is to learn to ride out racehorses.
