  • Description


    We are a family living in a beautiful part of North Lincolnshire. We have a small private livery yard, Arabian stud with stallions, brood mares and young stock as well as Endurance horses from novice to International Team prospects in almost 30 acres of varied pasture.

    We prefer those with previous equine experience to help primarily in the livery barn. There may be opportunity to also work with young stock and the endurance horses.

    Although we are situated in a small village there are bus links to the nearest town, Scunthorpe and Hull is approximately 30 minutes away. We are also close to South Humberside airport and Doncaster airport.

    We are looking for hard working, friendly people who want to learn about horses.

    Physical outdoor work in all aspects of horse care and welfare. A responsible, kind attitude towards animals and the ability to self motivate if working alone. Horse care is primarily about routine. Jobs will include feeding, rugs, turning out, mucking out, field care plus all the extra jobs around the yard to ensure the maintenance of the high standards we have here. There maybe ridden work available including schooling, canter training, lunging and grooming. Also fence management, general yard maintenance and field management.
