Olympic hopeful and European gold medallist Felicity, has already made a name for herself on both the national and international eventing circuits; having won on both. She prides herself on being a hard working, dedicated athlete, who has the drive and talent to succeed at the top. She has built up a small, successful string of horses up to 5* level, but is always looking for more to join the team. She is a proud member of the World Class Programme, and has also been on a senior GB nations cup team.
Vicky is the backbone of the everything that goes on at our home base in East Sussex. Vicky is a well known name on the Eventing circuit, having ridden successfully to 4* and shortlisted for the Atlanta Olympics 1996 on her homebred Welton Molecule. Vicky is the absolute definition of a grafter – someone who has made everything from nothing! She is chief lorry driver, groom, trainer, mentor, supporter and sponsor…everyone who knows her would agree that she has been a huge part of Felicity’s successes.
We are fortunate and excited to have Cat stepping up from a freelance role to a more permanent team member. Cat is already familiar with all of our horses, as she has been based with us for a number of years loaning a horse on livery. Cat's attention to detail is second to none and she does a super job in ensuring that all the horses are happy and healthy.
Claire is one of our long standing DIY liveries, and doubles up with being a great help in covering the yard for us when we are away at competitions with Cat. Claire also has a third interest in our team as an owner of Dantastic, a horse Felicity occasionally competes on her behalf. She is brilliant with all of our horses, and is usually seen whizzing round the yard quicker than the speed of light!
Caroline has been training Felicity since 2013, and is not only an incredible trainer who leaves no stone unturned, but an amazing mentor for Felicity too. Being the Junior Team Trainer, Caroline helped Felicity to her best performance at the European Championships 2016. She is extremely generous with her time, a huge confidence giver, and always on hand for any help or advice. Although Felicity is now a Senior, Caroline continues to be a vital part of Felicity’s, and the horses, progression up the levels.
