Have you sorted this? I may be able to help with some of it dependant on when you are going. If not this time let me know and I can get my details to you for next time. Regards Caroline the Horse Nanny ( not sure if we can out phone numbers and email addresses here? )
That’s great, glad you’re all sorted. I do holiday/illness/injury cover, short notice when people are stuck, part time/adhoc etc so if plan B ever fails please do get in touch. I also know of a few other grooms so if I can’t help I can probably at least point you towards some one who may be able to. Have a fab time at Olympia.
There should be a market for your services in this area given that I tried 6 people before I found someone available. I used Elite for 2 long stints when I was recovering from an injury/surgery, but they have ceased trading.
There is no obvious way to find freelance grooms. I tried the britishgrooms.ork.uk, but 2 I tried on there did not reply (no idea how old the adverts are).
