Riding Centre. Belford
My riding instructor must have seen a spark in my eye towards working with horses. Going from working a Saturday morning, to being asked to work during the week when on half terms meant a lot to me. I mucked out, broke in the youngsters and exercised horses myself. I used to aid riders who didnt have the ability to ride without a lead. These varied from having never ridden a horse before to RDA ( Riding for Disabled Agency). Whilst there, I also completed my certificate of Competence.

Carrying out bandage change with the Farmers Daughter
Up until moving to Aberfeldy in February 2019, I worked at a Spa and Hotel and loved every minute of it. I did multiple annual lambing, and I was on the farm in which my dad works on my afternoons off, helping with the pigs, cows and sheep!
When I first moved up to Aberfeldy I looked for a lambing and got offered one at Amulree. I was left in charge of the sheds (in by ewes) whiles the Boss and His son lambed and check fields and the hill blackies. My job consisted on marking & feeding lambs, to lambing the ewes and injecting if needed.
From September 2019 until May 10th I worked at Taymouth Marina. I applied for a Sauna but was asked to do Housekeeping, Caf and cover all areas needed. Here at Taymouth I have been shown how to use super-control for checking people in and taking bookings, both over the phone and via email.
I have been shown how to take payment over the phone via the card machine.
I handle money on a daily basis,. Both cash and card. At the end of every shift I have to cash up. I can take a GHD (good housekeeping deposit) through the system.
I am left to run the sauna daily and look after the paying customers. This is from showing them around and explaining our facilities to then serving them hot drinks or alcohol.
