Sam manages the centre during the week and joined The Stables in November 2010 having completed her degree in Equine Business Management at Harpbury University and finally returned from travelling the world - her other passion. Sam loves working here as it combines her first love, horses, with caring for others.
Rebecca started volunteering at the stables when she was 10 years old, doing the odd weekend here and there and just fell in love with the stables getting more involved with the horses.
She completed a Level 3 sub Diploma in Equine management, before joining the stables team. Once settled in she then progressed completing a different Level 3 Diploma in Equine management & Care apprenticeship. Armed with these skills she acquired, gave her the professional confidence to pass on these skills to the stables younger volunteers.
Victoria started volunteering at the stables when she was 11, teaching from 16 and has been working as a week day staff member since October 2010.
Victoria became involved in the stables due to a family friend who was involved at The Stables and invited her down to see the work they did and ride a horse. Victoria ended up loving everything about the place and stayed! Victoria has been riding competitively and has started her BHS exams.
Zsuzsanna joined the yard 10 years ago and really enjoys coming here because it is a friendly environment and she can learn about handling and caring for horses. It’s a really special place for her, the staff and other volunteers are like family. She loves dressage and hacking. Barney is Zsuzsanna’s favourite horse as he is good to ride, friendly, calm and funny. Her best jobs are leading, grooming, the muck heap and poo picking in our new arena.
