Meet the Committee
The riding club relies on its Committee to help it run efficiently. We are always keen to hear from our Members with requirements.
So please do tell us – we are a friendly team and we are ready to take on board what you want from YOUR club, and we will do our best to make it happen.
Chairman & Event Organiser (Safeguarding & First Aid)
Kirsty, took the club by the reins when it was close to closing, and put together a new committee, and she is only 30. She has been riding since she was 2 years old, competing up from pony club to British Eventing & British Dressage and now established at RoR (Retraining of Racehorses), with her ex race horse, Bertie and Copper. She held her jockey licence at 21years. She has a wide range of experience with horses dealing from foals, youngsters to competition horses and race horses. You may know Kirsty Holder due to her riding career. She is now an Emergency medical dispatcher for South Western Ambulance Service, so you are in safe hands.
PS….she doesn’t like teal and is old school with regards to Shows!
