Duties of Current Occupation
I run the barn when the manager is not on site, manage 30-50 horses, staff and volunteers, rehab neglected horses and give medical care, wrap legs,shots, hoof soaking, and I also train and do lots of re-starting work.
Equine Work Experience
I have been around horses my entire life, I started out taking lessons and then began learning barn work shortly after. I have a very calm, even temperment and can follow instruction well, I also have bo problem giving instructon. Before working at the equine rescue I worked in a show, lesson/boarding barn as a stable hand and the assistant manager and was responsible for 19-26 horses at any given time- feeding, turn out/in, stall and paddock cleaning, arena dragging, general maintenance, tacking/untacking, working/riding horses of all levels. I also traveled to horse shows and worked as a groom and did some riding for various clients.
I am very passionate about horses and have worked with everything from miniatures to drafts. I am comfortable handling all horses, well behaved or not, and I also have some experience with foals. I have done a lot of training work, both starting and re-starting horses as well as general maintenance riding. I am detail oriented, hard working, reliable and responsible.
Type of Ride Work
I have experience with a little bit of everything- I have a strong western background, and that is what I do most frequently. I have also done plenty of hunt seat riding, some jumping, dressage and have minimal experience with cows. I understand collection and schooling horses on the flat, and I am also very good at teaching ground manners and doing ground work.
I have shown AQHA shows for 10 years, both western and English and done well. I have also done some small local shows and trail challenges.
