Assistant Trainer/Work Rider
Travelling Head Girl/Work Rider
Jess has been with us for over four years now and is a very valued member of the team. Jess loves every one of the horses she looks after and does a fantastic job with them, she can ride the keenest horses in the yard, schools, drives the horsebox and turns the horses out to an outstanding standard where you will often see her winning best turned out on a regular basis. It has been great to see her confidence grow so much since she started here with us. She also very successfully competes her own horses in her spare time. Jess reached the final ten in the Godolphin Stud & Stable awards 2019 from hundreds of entrants and also rode in the Betfair Charity race at Newton Abbot on Johni Boxit also in the summer of 2019.
This is Lucy's first job in racing although she does have experience in other aspects of equestrian and boasts a honours degree in equine science with therapy, she is very diligent and works away well in the yard, she is now acclimatising to riding racehorses as well.

Antony has worked within the racing industry for many years and has a wealth of experience, he trains his own point to pointers in his spare time. Antony rides out as well as doing a lot of the transport jobs, attending the sales, picking up horses, taking horses to the vets etc. Antony also now does all our clipping.
Part Time Stable Staff
Lucy is Jess' younger sister. She is great in the yard and also rides to a good standard, she loves learning and thoroughly enjoys all aspects of the job.
Pete has been our farrier for a very long time now and does a great job, he has been with us since before the start and is brilliant at helping horses with very poor feet, he usually visits the yard twice a week.
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.
Ollie, Red & Smudge cannot be missed when anyone visits the yard, always in mischief but great company and good guard dogs.
