My name is Lindsay and I am an 18yr old Australian looking for paid work with horses in the Perth area.
I am a competent horse rider, and I am confident on any horse that I have been asked to ride.I am quite short so I can ride ponies as short as 12.0 hh with
a saddle and 11.1 hh bareback. I have a ridden a variety of horses and ponies: with different personalities (easy going do what you ask to stubborn), different
heights (12.2 hh to 16 hh), different breeds (Quarter horse x stock horse, Andalusian x Thoroughbred, Welsh pony and a fair bit of OTTBs) and different ages (4 and 6
were the youngest). I didn't and don't own a horse, although I came close to leasing a horse named Dancer, then Coco and finally 6yr old OTTB Toughen up. I usually
rode once a week, twice during the school holidays and some days I'd ride two horses. I stopped riding for a while due to family issues and when I did get back into it
I found myself catching onto it real quickly to what I had previously learned. I did a lot of work with leading the pony rides, caring for horses and ponies,
maintaining the riding school and other general duties.I rode preliminary dressage tests and can jump at grade D or higher with the right horse and training, although
my maximum jumping height is 40cm, I am confident in being able to jump higher, we just didn't have the horses and my riding school didn't really allow much room for
progress as we had 11yr old girls taking our lessons.
I have competed in two riding competitions during my time at the riding school, one in which I scored really well and came overall champion rider, and the other in
which I was eliminated from a round after falling off and eliminated from another due to a stubborn pony.
