The role of Equine Lead

Working alongside our experienced team of teachers, your key responsibility will be providing dedicated, thorough, high quality care for a small group of well-mannered, predominantly field-kept horses and ponies. This care includes regular exercising, plenty of New Forest hacking, and some schooling as appropriate.

To apply for this role you must hold a BHS qualification Level 2 or 3 (or equivalent), preferably to include coaching. You should also be confident and competent with clipping, routine veterinary care and loading/travelling. The ability to tow would be a bonus.

If you are interested and believe you have the relevant skills and experience, please email m.pridham@fcrt.ac.uk  and/or b.allen@fcrt.ac.uk for an application pack including job description and person specification.
