Assistant Trainer / Work Rider / Office
Daisy is of course the better half of Brian, together they make a great team. Daisy ensures the smooth running of the yard and is in charge of the team below as well as riding out & looking after all the office work. There certainly aren't many jobs she doesn't take on through the course of a week!
Part time Stable Staff / Rider
Jess has been with us for nearly six years now and is a very valued member of the team. She is in several mornings a week as well as now training to be a PE instructor.
Stable Staff / Rider
Lucy has been with us part time since she was 12 years old, shes recently passed her driving test so shes been here a while and knows the routine very well for someone of her age. She is great in the yard and also rides to a good standard, she loves learning and thoroughly enjoys all aspects of the job and its great to now have her here full time, she is currently working towards her NVQs.
John has been with us for over a year now and has a very varied job description, he works with the horses in the mornings and then you will find him either cutting grass, painting, fixing fences or washing the horseboxes! A great asset to the team.
Part Time Yard Staff
Martin has a huge passion for racing and as well as his normal day job of being a postman he comes in regularly to give us a hand in the yard in the mornings. His enthusiasm is great to see.
Tom Doggrell & Angus Cheleda
Both Tom & Angus are local and ride out for us on a regular basis which is a great asset, they have both ridden us winners and will hopefully continue to do so for some time! Tom has been riding out for us since he was 14 years old and is now one of the most promising 7lb claimers in the country & Angus now only claims 5lb and is attached to the champion trainer, Paul Nicholls.
Pete has been our farrier from the start and does a great job, he is brilliant at helping horses with very poor feet, he usually visits the yard twice a week.
John Hankinson & Steve Walsh
Equine Manipulations & Veterinary
John has also been working with us for several years and is fantastic for helping keep the horses in great physical shape, he works with some of the biggest names in the the industry so can only be a very useful asset. John introduced us to Steve who does a great job working with John to keep the horses in the best physical shape possible, Steve has worked all over the world and now works for the highly regarded Summerhill Equine Vets.
Paul handles all our day to day routine vet work and also assists with the stud business.
Ollie, Red & Smudge cannot be missed when anyone visits the yard, always in mischief but great company and good guard dogs.
