Our ideal candidate would be dressage focused, have excellent attention to detail, be able to work independently and love every horse at the barn as their own.
We will have up to 20 horses at the property - a mix of our own and clients' horses. We pride ourselves in horse care excellence and will always go above and beyond to ensure every horse is cared for to the highest of standards.

• Occasional School pick up & drop off

We are not in a rush to find the right person, so do not require an immediate starter. Ideally you will be ready to start in April.

This is a live-in position so will suit someone who wants to be part of our active family. We are offering a very large bedroom with a luxurious ensuite and lovely view. We have a pool, gym and a car available for you to use.
