Career opportunities


Grooms quartersGrooms can receive training towards NVQ and/or BHS qualifications if required and in the past we have trained grooms to BHSAI and NVQ III level.

Grooms sometimes get the opportunity to compete, typically in dressage and showjumping, sometimes even at affiliated level (depending upon ability) and in the past have competed client horses up to Advanced Medium.

Grooms have gone on from Fairoak to a variety of equestrian positions including other Advanced dressage riders and trainers, Spencer Wilton, Schockemohle, James Burtwell and international show jumper Paul Crago as well as related careers such as veterinary nurses, managing livery yards and Equine Hospital grooms.

They also become involved in the range of activities at Fairoak including producing youngsters and organising competitions.

Staff live on site in luxury purpose built modern accommodation.
