Support Team

Tracey Collett – My Mum

My Mum Tracey “aka Marge” is AMAZING and as cliched as it might sound I wouldn’t have got where I am today without her dedication & sacrifices.

She has been and will continue to be a huge support and the most important member of my team. From the age of 2 she has been integral to developing my riding and career over the years as well as running of the yard up until this year. She comes to numerous events throughout the year and is the best Tea maker on the eventing circuit. I think the owners love her as much as I do.

Tilly Hughes – Travelling Groom

Tilly originally joined the team back in November 2018 for a year before heading off to have a year travelling, COVID 19 put paid to those plans and she rejoined us earlier than planned in August 2020.

Tilly is the consummate professional, with the horses being turned out immaculately, she is an absolute pleasure to have on the team & became a real asset to the yard within a very short space of time.

Sarah Whatley – Yard Groom

Sarah joined the team in September 2020, she has a weatlh of experience in eventing having worked for a number of  5* eventing yards.

She knows every detail about all the horses in her care and is a vital part of the team. She is hard working, trustworthy, conscientious with a great calming temperament and looks after the horses as if they were her own.

Claire King – The Office!

Claire is the “office” and has been part of Team since 2009. She looks after all the administration / secretarial jobs relating to the business, the day-to-day financial affairs and monthly billing, assists me with managing all of my  sponsorship/PR/Marketing inc the website, staff recruitment, etc or basically anything not directly related to the actual day to day care of the horses.

Tom Campbell BVSc MRCVS – Vet

Tom Campbell of Bourton Vale Equine Clinic is our regular vet and he is fantastic. The horses’ care is always paramount. He is actively involved in all aspects of his practice, running their scintigraphy (bone scanning) unit and can turn his hand to surgery when required.

He particularly specialises in lameness investigations, predominantly racehorse, polo and sport horses. The vets and staff continue to support us through our trials and tribulations and we’re very grateful for their excellence.
