I can lift up to 75lbs, groom, dress, medicate, muck stalls, etc. If there is something I don't know how to do, I am more than willing to learn so that I can become more qualified and be a better asset to the team. I can also pull shoes with the correct equipment as I often worked closely with our farrier when I was downtown. I can help with live breeding, foal care, assisting veterinary staff, and assist in birth.
I currently am working remotely for my previous company on my own personal time. I am currently looking for work in the Charleston area, hoping to get back into a career with horses.
I rode competitive english competition when I was a child, but due to moving around so much due to being a military family, I did not have the chance to keep riding, so I began working on friends farms until I moved to Charleston and started working for Olde Towne Carriage Co. (now Charleston Carriage Works - new owner). I have been around horses, big and small, my whole life, and have worked on minis to large drafts to racehorses at the clinic. My fiancé also used to be a horse trainer, so we do still go riding while he trains new/younger horses. My fiancé and I also worked at a thoroughbred breeding/racing farm in Louisiana.
Worked over two years as a barn manager for a carriage company downtown taking care of the horses, as well as working six months as a veterinary technician for Edisto Equine Clinic during the summer. I can preform basic medical care, administer medication, recognize symptoms of potential sickness/problems, and view grooming and mucking stalls as the best form of therepy that there is.
I am not as experienced in the saddle as I used to be due to moving around so much. I can do light exercising and trail riding, but am always looking for ways to get more confident in the saddle again. I love to ride and would even love to learn some things!
I competed in English Show as a child but nothing for almost 20 years now. Although I do not wish to compete, I have always wanted to learn how to jump.
