I began working at Snainton Riding Centre when I was a student studying at College. Through college I gained my National Diploma in Horse Management and a Foundation Degree in Equine Business Management. I also achieved my BHS Stage 1 and Riding and Road Safety. On completing my studies, I began working full time.

I have a very varied job at the centre, especially during the summer months when I work on the main yard mostly as competition groom to Charlotte and Ellen’s horses. During the winter I look after seven hunt horses, keeping them fit and well through the season.

The thing I most enjoy about my job is turning out the horses that I look after to a high standard and seeing them look amazing when they are doing their job!

Rachael is great with competition riders – keeping them level-headed and focused!
