  • Good at working in a small but dedicated team
  • Undertaking and maintaining the day to day tasks relating to the stud
  • Experienced in the transportation of horses to sale/mares for cover
  • Interested in flat racing and breeding
  • Good with communication skills

A competitive salary will be offered which does not include annual performance-based bonuses. Private, recently refurbished on-site accomodation will be provided and bills will be covered by the stud.
