2015-2019 sales calling for a year and currently a property broker in London

I have been working in the city of London for the last five years. Unfortunately, I had to give up riding full time. I love the City but it is time for a change for me and I would love to get back outdoors again and work with horses.

I have been riding since the age of six.  I owned my own horse from the age of fourteen and took him to events regularly (competing in all three disciplines). Unfortunately, we had to put him down two years ago due to illness.

I try and ride as much as possible when I am home, most of the time it will be the hunt horses in the off season. I am used to dealing with fresh horses, my horse was a Thoroughbred x Connemara who was a fantastic ride but could only be ridden by competent riders as he was a handful. I would love the opportunity to work with horses again especially in NZ as I have friends and family living there. I am flexible with roles but would much prefer to exercise the horses. I would be super grateful if you have any positions coming up. I am happy to start in the next two months and would be available until April possibly longer if needed.
