We recently moved to this lovely yard - all my staff and liveries came with me. I am a classically trained dressage rider and a qualified instructor. My main aim when I started running a livery yard was to provide a relaxed, happy and supportive atmosphere with high standards of horse care.

Vacancy description

Cheval Court Stud has 19 boxes and around 52 acres of grazing with a canter track and nearby gallops. The existing staff have worked for me for quite a few years so we are a bit like a family and everyone supports and helps each other.

A typical day involves:

  • We organise the day over a cup of coffee
  • Turn out
  • Muck out
  • Bring in
  • We then exercise the horses and groom
  • After lunch we finish the exercising
  • Tack clean
  • Turn out the night horses
  • Evening stables are done by 5 pm
  • Hay up

Apprentices will be a part of the team and will carry out all yard duties.

Desired skills

  • Applicants will need to have basic stable and riding skills from previous experience with horses and show this on application
  • Good communication skills

Personal qualities

  • A teamplayer
  • A real love for horses
  • Reliable and trustworthy

Desired qualifications

  • GCSE's or equivalent in maths and English at Grade C/4/Level 2 are desired but not essential
  • Applicants MUST NOT already hold a level 2 or higher in Horse Care

Future prospects

  • Future full employment as a fully trained groom for the right candidate.

Things to consider

  • KEITS Training Services Ltd reserves the right to close the vacancy earlier than the listed closing date should the need arise.
