As a junior, Jamie gained a reputation as a capable and natural pony rider, always producing his ponies from novices. He enjoyed much success and the move on to horses was a natural one. Jamie spent time learning his trade in the established stables of Liz Edgar and later Tim Stockdale before setting up his own stables near Leamington Spa, Warwickshire. By now Jamie had met his long term partner Kirsty and together they continued to build their business into the successful jumping stables that it is today.
Megan is a 15 year old Dressage rider, who at the age of 10 decided that jumping was not for her so with the help of her 12hh pony Otty set off on her dressage journey competing at the Cricklands Dressage Championships.
On her next pony Danny they went on to join BYRDS & U21 Dressage and had great success competing at the inter regional competitions and home internationals.
She was determined that she wanted to compete at FEI level so after an exhaustive search across the UK & into Europe bought "Valido's Starlight" from Faringdon (45 minutes from home!!!)
Star had competed internationally with his previous owner but it was a tall order taking Megan from novice level to pony FEI!
They have competed internationally in 2016 & 2017, where Megan & Star were on the Bronze medal winning team at the European Championships in Hungry.
2018 is Megan and Star's last year together and Megan's GCSE year, however they are on the Pony prime squad for training and hope to compete internationally while exams allow and campaign for the 2018 Europeans.
