I'm a groom at a stable and I've found the thing that sets me apart from others when being interviewed in the hiring process is the fact that I have a professional looking resume. I always bring references too. Be sure to contact the people you want to put down as references and get permission, so the call doesn't come unexpected to them.
My jobs as a stable hand/groom are: hand walking injured horses, turn out, blanketing, putting on fly masks and fly spray, cleaning stalls and paddocks, feeding, watering, lunging, tacking up, grooming, wrapping legs, ect.
How much horse experience do you have? The more you have, the easier you'll get hired as a groom or stable hand.
For finding an actual job, post flyers in feed and tack stores, online, and call or email local barns and ask if they are hiring. Even if a barn isn't currently hiring, they'll keep your information on file in case they need another employee in the future.
