It’s exciting times at Team Collett, we are delighted to finally introduce our newest member of staff Elodie Taylor.
Elodie joined the team on the 1st July 2017, whilst having enjoyed her time working as cabin crew for British Airways we are thrilled she decided to return to her equestrian roots.
Elodie has a great sense of fun and some amazing experiences to add to the yard, she left school and spent 2 years at the British Racing School in Newmarket, training for her NVQ2 in Racehorse Care and Riding. This included a year’s work in Lambourn, with trainer Clive Cox, giving her experience of riding lots and handling young colts & stallions. To continue her passion for travel & racing she moved to the other side of the world to work for Jake Stevens Racing yard in Australia working at both the yard and at the races. On her return to the UK she spent a season with Gifford’s Circus, an eclectic vintage circus that tours the Cotswolds.
Elodie has a wonderfully calm manner on the yard and around the horses, she’s a lovely easy person & within a short space of time, shown how trustworthy & conscientious she is. Whilst we are thrilled Elodie is a competent first aider and no doubt will react well in emergency situations due to her BA training we hope that’s one skill we won’t be using too soon.
We are thrilled she has joined the team and has become a real asset to the yard within a very short space of time.
