YARD STAFF required – part time | Glanvilles Stud


YARD STAFF REQUIRED by the Glanvilles Stud (Glanvilles Wootton). Part time – can fit around school hours.
Join us to be part of the unfolding racing story of our young racehorses: helping shape their futures from birth and following their progress on the track. No riding required.

Glanvilles Stud has a part-time vacancy for a Stud Hand – three days a week plus alternate Saturdays and Sundays – to join the existing, dedicated team, initially to the end of April. Either a genuine 8am-5pm working day or could fit around school drop-off and pick-up times. It could be two people working two days a week and one Sunday a month or some other variation – open to discussion for the right people.

The job involves working with well-mannered (mostly… 😁) broodmares, foals and youngstock; leading in and out, mucking out, feeding, assisting with veterinary and farrier work, prepping for sales and assisting with stud maintenance. Work is varied and interesting.

We are a mares-only stud with high standards, breeding top quality racehorses. Our existing team enjoy following the careers of the foals and youngstock they have helped raise.

Ideally you have previous experience with horses, and you do need to be physically fit, but the main criteria is you are willing to fit in with, and become part of, our enthusiastic, happy team.

We are easy to get to, in Glanvilles Wootton, five miles south of Sherborne – we’re even on the Dorchester/Sherborne X11 bus route if that helps.

Please email enquiries@theglanvillesstud.co.uk or call Doug Procter on 07974 314262 to discuss.
