Working for Paul Schockemöhle, Gestüt Lewitz was a great experience.I went to Germany from beginning of June to the end of August and had a memorable time.
I came away learning many new techniques for breaking and training young horses. The other staff working there are from all over the world and everyone gets on with each other.
I have made great friends who I remain in contact with since I have come to home to continue with college.I got the chance to receive training from Thomas Mohr on the horses, present horses for trainers and clients.
It was rewarding work when you received feedback that everything ran well. Overall this was an excellent experience and I would be more than happy to go back again if there was a position available.

The experience gained in working on this yard, in my 22 months is equivalent of at least 8 years worth of experience (in my opinion!).
You will be privileged to have seen, to ride, and to take care of young future sport horses. Many, many will go under your care and some will touch your hearts and linger in your memories.
Honestly, it is all hard work but it is so worth it when you see young horse develop under your care. The trainers are straight forward, very communicative and the fellow grooms and riders all come from all parts of the world.
In addition to this, the trainers will impart their invaluable knowledge, the dentist who come on a regular basis (and you will get to know them as they will see to 'your' horses) as well as the vets so in this sense, you learn something new on a daily basis.
No two horses are the same, and yet every one of hem have left an hoof mark on my soul. Thank you for all the experiences!
