The Team

Grooms

Gill Buckley

Gill has been a huge part of the family for the last 10 years and her experience as an event groom has not only helped Bella get to where she is today, she has also been an enormous support link to Bella. Gill now travels to all the big international 3 day events and keeps all the horses (and Bella!) under control. She is also helping me with the social media and the administrative side of things relating to the business – I really would be absolutely lost without her!

Bex White

Bex started part-time since Bella moved down to William Fox-Pitt’s yard in Dorset and is now working full time. Bex is another integral part of the team who keeps all the horses in brilliant shape and pampers to their every needs as if they were her own! We are all very lucky to have her as part of the team.

Physio

Steph Brighton is a valuable member of the team and Bella can always feel a massive difference in her horses after she has visited. Steph has a phenomenal attention to detail and makes sure that all the horses are able to perform to the best of their ability.

Farrier

Tigga Barnes has taken the time to get to know each of Bella’s horses since she has arrived in Dorset at the Fox-Pitt’s. He has adapted his shoeing to suit their individual needs as well as bringing fantastic new ideas to help the horses reach their full potential.

Trainers

Harry Payne

Harry has transformed both Bella’s dressage riding as well as her overall scores in the test. Harry makes everything incredibly straight forward and easy to understand so Bella will always walk away from the lesson with huge confidence and understanding the areas she needs to work on. He has enormously helped increase Bella’s knowledge on producing the young horses and laying the correct foundations as well as fine-tuning her top horses.

Chris Bartle

Chris has provided invaluable support and guidance to Bella over the past 4 years. He has outstanding expertise and experience being the Team German Trainer and now British Eventing Team’s High Performance Coach. Chris has increased Bella’s confidence no end by simplifying the jumping phases and making her ride with what she feels instead of over thinking her performance.

Parents

Both my parents are utterly amazing and I really wouldn’t have got to where I have today without their dedication, support and sacrifices. Their support means the world to me and I can’t thank them enough for everything they have done for me and my horses over the years as without them, nothing I have achieved would have been possible.

Bedding

Roxburghe Eventing horses are incredibly lucky to be bedded on Bedmax.

Bedmax is by far the best bedding in the industry and the horses adore coming into their stables with huge top quality, dust free beds. It is so essential for their health and well-being for them to have the best quality beds, to ensure they have clear airways at all times, in order for them to perform to their best ability.
