I have equestrian tourism/hospitality experience.
I have experience co-leading a wrangling team.
Neatness and cleanliness is very important to me. The horses I prepare are clean and tidy. I am efficient, a self starter and an independent worker. I work well alone but am not afraid to ask questions or work with a team.
Type of Ride Work
I have ridden a wide variety of horses;
3 Years old under 5 rides, green horses, ‘trouble’ horses, with a very wide variety of breeds.
I mainly specialize in flat work (english and western) trail riding (deserts to mountains), ranch-style riding and some jumping.
