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.
Sophie is relatively new to us but has fit in with the rest of the team really well, she is a very pleasant, polite person who is a pleasure to have around, Sophie looks after the main barn in the mornings, and is in charge of lunch time feeds. Sophie can also ride out and she is looking forward to taking her favourite horses racing in the near future.
Part Time Yard Staff
Sian has many years exprience within the racing industry having worked for the Barbers & Harry Fry, since settling down and starting a family she has quit the riding but is still a massive help in the yard when needed and normally does all the clipping in the winter months as well.
Lucy is Jess' younger sister. She is great in the yard and also rides to a good standard.
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.
