Wentwood Grange Thoroughbred horse stud are looking for two stud grooms to join our team due to one of our long term staff members leaving us to go on to the next stage of her life up North.
It’s going to be hard to replace her but we will try.
Though previous horse stud experience is an advantage, it is not a necessity. We are willing to take on someone with less experience as long as they are eager to learn.
The position is Monday to Friday 7am to 4pm, plus one day every other weekend, morning and afternoon feed up.
Duties involve working with mixed ages of blood stock, feeding the farms, helping with vet work and general farm maintenance.
During the summer you would be expected to join the yearling prep team and attend the annual Karaka yearling sale. The main farm is 5mins south of Cambridge.
Unfortunately accomodation is not available. Remuneration depends on level of experience.

•Previous horse or farming experience
•The ability to work alone as well as part of a team
•A can do attitude •An interest in horse racing
•Able to provide at least two references
