A LABOUR OF LOVE

Horse & Hound - - Newsinsider -

GROOM of 20 years, Natalie Philp, hopes the EEA will help im­prove stan­dards for work­ers.

She told H&H she was

“fed up” of the hours she was ex­pected to work and the un­re­al­is­tic time­frame she was given to carry out tasks.

“I’ve been given an hour and a half to do 11 horses and been paid £40 for a day’s work,” she said. “I love my job, but some [em­ploy­ers] put too much on.

“You feel bad be­cause you try and cut cor­ners, which you can’t with an­i­mals — it’s not fair to me or them.

“Some­times I don’t think em­ploy­ers ap­pre­ci­ate how hard it is keep on top of things. I hope the EEA will en­cour­age them to step up.”
