This is a wonderful opportunity for an experienced Groom looking to work in a competitive, yet fun, private, family eventing yard in gorgeous Somerset.
We are ideally looking for a competent rider who can help hack the children’s horses whilst they are at school so a good rider would be an advantage although this is not essential. 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 part time position, 3 days a week, Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday (8.00am-5.30pm) although there is some flexibility available for the right person. Extra hours and days can be given if the person requires and any help at competitions is an option too.
Car driver essential due to rural location and demands of the job.
We are looking for a real team player. Someone reliable is paramount.
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 4 horses at BE100- 2*.
Opportunity to be put through lorry licence too if the person is keen!
The person MUST have worked in a high level competition yard previously (ideally British Eventing, show jumping, dressage or similar). At this stage we cannot consider those who have not. Due to being let down in the past we are looking for a very reliable, trustworthy and willing person.
Riding photos and videos will be required for the selection process if the person wishes to ride.
Accommodation a possibility for the right person. This could be a non riding position. Unfortunately this vacancy will not suit a beginner or those without competition experience.
