Phoebe has been around horses since a young age, and she told us: “There was no other option for me as a career. I’ve always known that I would work with horses.” She achieved her ambition and now works as a full-time groom at Millfield School in Somerset.
Phoebe recognises that many employers prefer their staff to be BHS qualified: “As I’ve chosen to make working with horses my career for life, it seemed appropriate that I become skilled and qualified. Within the equine industry, BHS qualifications are highly regarded and the most recognised.”
As dawn breaks and the birdsong surrounds us, Phoebe takes you to meet Clever – a beautiful mare owned and ridden by Millfield Equestrian Centre’s Danny Anholt, Fellow of The British Horse Society. She also shares her dream to one day become a professional groom.
