The Horse Trust is committed to providing high quality, evidenced based training to horses, considering all their needs and working at the individual horses own pace to create a positive learning environment. The ideal candidate will be a self-starter who is happy to work autonomously but is also keen to work in a team environment. This candidate will have the chance to join our highly motivated team in training and retraining and ultimately rehoming equines, including welfare cases. You will work closely with specialists: including veterinary surgeon, clinical animal behaviourist, farrier and nutritionists, to continually assess the individual requirements of each equine. This horse centred environment will offer the candidate new experience of the charity sector; it is an exciting time to join our small and diverse team.

As the Equine Trainer you will provide a high standard of training and welfare to the equines under your care, working under the supervision of the Director of Training. You will assess and devise individual training programmes for horses that are being prepared to be rehomed and those that may be exhibiting unwanted behaviours. This will include carrying out a range of training and retraining techniques both from the ground and under saddle or harness, in conjunction with our specialist team. This will include the daily care and general yard tasks for a dedicated list of equines.

Candidates should demonstrate excellent communication and organisational skills, be a team player, be open to new ideas and want to continually develop their knowledge and skills. The successful candidate ideally will have a Level 3 equine qualification or similar and must be able to demonstrate practical competence and experience in handling and training a variety of horses in different settings, taking into account their individual needs. Ideally, you will have knowledge of horses ethological needs and an in-depth knowledge of horse behaviour and body language.
