Our Instructors and staff

                                                                                                              

This page is devoted to our dedicated team of instructors. Over the years we have attracted very talented Instructors and our current team is no exception.We like to keep a very high ratio of staff to clients.   We have learnt that we need to employ qualified and experienced staff in order to ensure that not only our horses but also all our riders are well looked after and receive the level of personal attention they deserve. All our instructors are CRB Checked  and First Aid Trained.

 

Right to Left

Anita, Karen, Darcy, Lucy, Maria and Chriss.

Anitalea

Proprietor of the yard Anitalea is a very talented instructor who holds her BHSAI.  She has chosen to dedicate herself to teaching riders of all levels to become confident horsemen and women. She is a much sought after and popular instructor, who is as happy teaching beginners as she is helping riders to develop more advanced skills. Regular private slots with Anitalea whether in the arena or on training hacks, are much in demand. An excellent instructor who enjoys her work. They say Anitalea was riding before she could walk.

Chriss

Chriss has settled in well and has fast establishing himself as a very good instructor to all ages and levels. Chriss worked at the farm at the weekends and holidays living and breathing horses every second he could. He loves to compete at Show Jumping and One Day Events. Chriss can help you get the most out of your riding for competition or pleasure. He has proven to be very patient while encouraging when taking the rider to a higher level or riding.

Terri

Terri loves when new Riding School horses arrive at the yard. She loves the challange of clipping, mane pulling and making our new horses look fabulous.  Terri  works her magic on Livery horses also and loves the shocked look of delight of the owner when they see the transformation. Terri is always available for help or advice on practically anything as she has proven she knows about horses.  Staff and customers would like to congratulate Terri on the birth of a gorgeous boy Jay born 29.9.15 7lb 4oz. Jay could not get anymore handsome as he grows up.

Terri has now returned to the Farm but I am sure she misses this handsome boy every minute.

Karen is very dedicated to the care of all our horses. Karen enjoys taking the Tiny Tot Rides but loves to groom and look after all the horses.

Darcy

Darcy is very friendly and chats to everyone and has matured into a very helpful  and eager to please young lady. Darcy  passed her Stage 1 Horse and knowledge with distinction. And has also passed her stage 2 . We are proud to say that Darcy has also passed her Driving Test 1st time.
Your hard work paid off  Well done Darcy !

Rhiannon

Rhiannon always puts the best interests of all the animals first. She is animal obsessed.  The staff call her DR Dolittle as you will find her always chatting away to a horse when she is working near them. Her people skills are second to none as she has a great relationship with staff and customers.

 

And finally …

Thanks to all our staff for contributing  none of this would mean a thing without a dedicated, knowledgeable and passionate team to look after the horses,  shop and office. We see ourselves as one big family, we work together and through choice we even socialise together. It is for this reason that Roundknowe Farm functions so well and that is the secret behind our success.
