"My grandparents introduced me to horses at a local show in Kenilworth. From then on riding lessons became the highlight of my week. After getting married and moving to Bulby I rekindled my passion for horses and was introduced to the world of eventing. The smell of horses, hay and leather always evokes happy childhood memories."

Pony Club A Test
BHS Stage 4, BHSAI
"Daughter of owner, Sue, I have been very lucky to grow up at Bulby. Many of the lovely ponies that I learned to ride on, who fuelled my passion for horses and eventing, are still with us today.
I have been supported hugely by the yard in obtaining my Pony Club A Test, BHS AI and BHS Stage 4, and love sharing knowledge, teaching and watching clients progress.
After an MPhil at Cambridge and a new job in investment, I am more a friendly face, social media whizz and yard advisor than coach."
BHSI, Stage 5 Coach
Pony Club Coach of the year 2018
BHS and staff coach and Pony Club Assessor
"I have competed in all major disciplines, Dressage, Eventing and Show Jumping. I have had a great life competing and coaching in Hong Kong, Greece, Italy as well as here in UK. Seeing riders gaining personal pleasure from their horse or riders representing their country and knowing I have been a small part of their journey is very fulfilling."

Stage 4 Coach
Saddle and Pony Club Leader
"I had ponies from an early age into my 30s and loved exploring the surrounding woodlands and countryside.
After gaining my childcare qualifications I first came to work at Bulby in 2001 as a groom/nanny and have lots of fond memories of a tiny Diana and her pony Polo.
I came back down to the yard full time in 2008 to help develop the centre and combine my love of working with children and horses with the pony club. In 2011 I left on more nanny adventures and to have my own family and now I’m back to rekindle my love of teaching and educating the grassroots of pony club. "
Stage 3 Coach
"Having learnt to ride at 4yrs old horses have always been my first love. My passion is dressage having competed a number of horses up to PSG. Training young horses and breeding is one of my favourite things about working in the world of horses. And teaching clients to achieve what they think is an unachievable goal always makes my day."
"I have been riding for forty six years, and as a teenager worked in riding schools, hunting, livery and breeders' yards. My children started their riding at Bulby and then had their own show ponies. I have youngsters for the past four years, backing and schooling them and riding at the stud associated with the livery yard."
