Description

This is an exciting role for a candidate that loves riding and feels at home on a variety of horses.

The location is based on a beautiful yard with an indoor school and horse walker. The property has 20 horses on site from foals to older horses.


You will have the opportunity to break in a variety of young stock and will exercise up to 7 horses a day to keep them fit for the owners. The employer will cover the costs of you having flat and jump lessons weekly. You are able to compete the horses also. The location breeds competition horses on a small scale every year and the family bred the amazing Tamarillo!!

General yard duties will include:-

  • Preparing horses for shows
  • Plaiting
  • Grooming
  • Riding
  • Lunging

A truly great location which will allow you to treat the horses as your own. This apprenticeship is based fulltime on site in a practical setting so not lots of time spent in a classroom. If you did not achieve your Maths & English GCSE's at school we will support you to gain these whilst on programme.


Working standard hours are 7.30pm-4pm but a super flexible site so sometimes you will be done by 2pm. On show days you will be required to work different hours.

This apprenticeship is practical based onsite, so not lots of time spent sitting in a classroom. If you did not gain your GCSE's in Maths & English at school we can support you to get these whilst on programme.


The interview will consist of a trial day working on the yard.

To apply for this role you must be a UK resident or have lived in the EU for 3 years. If you already hold a L3 Equine qualification you are unable to apply for this role.

To be successful in your application, you must be a competent rider.

A GCSE or equivalent pass in English and maths is beneficial but not essential. If you do not have passes, we will support you in achieving your Functional Skills English and maths qualifications alongside your apprenticeship.

All training will be provided on site during your paid working hours. Your day to day mentoring will be with your employer, and a combination of online and in person monthly sessions will be held with your Haddon Training Trainer Coach.
