Introducing Farnham’s skilled Groomsmen
It was in 2005, when I first admired a friend while he was brushing his horses. I told myself that one-day I would look after these precious animals.
An opportunity presented itself to me in 2006 at Farnham.
Tamar gave me words of encouragement and I was so excited. I began to work at first with competitive ponies, which left a huge mark of success on me, winning most of the shows I attended. I hope this is the place I will finish my career as a groom.
I have four and a half years work experience with horses.
I came to work at Farnham because I had a lot to gain in terms of experience because there is consistent and regular training.
My favorite horse is Brandy. He understands me, is quiet and always stands still to enjoy his daily brush.
I have 5 years experience. All the guys here work as a team; we all enjoy our jobs and help each other out.
I enjoy my job as groom relief, it allows me to spend special time with each and every horse on the other grooms day off.
I love all horses the same way but I can say Turbo (out little Shetland pony) is my favorite. He is so special, has fun, runs around the yard as our mascot and makes me laugh.
To all my management team and my boss, I salute you.
I started working at Farnham in 2014, just doing grass and water for all the horses and helping the maintenance team. During the holidays in 2014 I was taught how to look after the horses properly by putting on boots and tacking up. I enjoyed learning this and now I am a permanent groom at Farnham. I am still learning everyday and I love working with the horses.
