Emma Evans

Assistant trainer Emma has been in racing since she was 16, working for a variety of trainers in Newmarket and Lambourn and gaining valuable experience from each yard. She was an accomplished amatuer rider for many years and rode many winners. She was a member of the Fegentri team which rode in Boston and Chicago in 2002.




Mark Doyle

With over 30 years in racing Mark is a great asset to the yard and for the last six years has been responsible for breaking and schooling our yearlings.

Katherine Begley

Multi-talented Katherine Begley joined us last year. She has ridden in point-to-points and advanced level eventing. Katherine  has ridden two winners for us on the Flat this year and thrives on work. She says she loves her job.

Lisa Mitchell

Lisa is extremely well organised and does a lot of the ground work in the yard. She loves her horses, paricularly taking them racing and turning them out to an extremely high standard. She has worked in top jump yards in the past and crossed paths with assistant trainer Emma when they both worked for Jenny Pitman.

Philip Prince

Philip is our 3lb apprentice jockey, who can do a light weight and is extremely good value for his claim. He also has a heavy goods vehicle licence which is very helpful when we need a second horsebox to go racing.

Steven Davies

Steven is a former flat jockey and champion apprentice during his younger days in Newmarket. His considerable experience is a great benefit to the yard, particularly as a lightweight rider for two-year-olds in work.

Aled Beech

Aled has been with us for 12 months has had two encouraging rides as an amateur on the Flat.

Ellie Mackenzie

Ellie has been riding since a child and has quite a bit of experience working for top trainers in Britain and Ireland. She has ridden in arab races and is aiming to get her amateur's licence to ride on the Flat.

Roxanne Bidgway

Roxanne is a bubbly character who has only been with us a short while, helping out in the yard and riding a couple of lots a day.

Tara Mitchell

Tara is one of our longest serving employees and takes huge pride in all she does, whether its in the stable or taking horses racing. She has been off injured but hopes to return soon

David Jones

Dav is the life and soul of the yard. He too is only of longest serving empoyees and everything inthe yard seems to tick around him.
