You will be required to carry out all yard duties to a high standard as well as turning horses and ponies out for competitions (plaiting, clipping, trimming etc).

Basic lameness and injury care a must.

This is a full time position, 5.5 days a week although there is some flexibility available for the right person. Weekends will be included when the horses are competing.

Car driver essential due to rural location and demands of the job.

Well behaved pet(s) welcome. We are looking for a real team player.

The ideal candidate will be enthusiastic and enjoy getting involved and helping 3 ambitious, competent riders to progress up the British Eventing ladder.

You will be required to look after 2 ponies that are competing at BE 80/90 level and 3 horses at BE100- 2*.

Opportunity to be put through lorry licence too if the person is keen!

Accommodation a possibility for the right person.
