You will have a sound knowledge of equine behaviour along with the skills required to work safely and methodically with unhandled, nervous horses in a busy environment along with practical experience of lunging, long reining and progressing horses, starting from scratch right through to riding away and bringing on under saddle.
You must be a team player with a polite, professional and friendly manner, a sense of humour and the aptitude to work on your own initiative. You will need to be prepared for a physically demanding and challenging role no matter what the weather. The ability to tow a trailer would be advantageous.
