Neil Leach 

Head Lad

In charge at Hazelrigg since the start of the 2014/15 season, I’m not sure what we’d do without Leachey!  He’s up at silly o’clock every morning to feed the horses. Not only is he excellent at keeping a beady eye on all the horses, but just as important he keeps the staff right!


Louise Harris

Work Rider

Louise brings a wealth of experience to the team, having spent many years down in Newmarket with Luca Cumani & James Fanshawe. She’s an excellent work rider and a valuable member of staff. She also bred Cole who’s our star lad!


Tony Gavioli


We share Tony with the farming operation here and he is an essential member of staff. Tony looks after our gallop & pool, ferries around everything from muck to shavings to wood chips for the biomass. He is basically a godsend!


Lou Cross


Lou has been our secretary since day one. She takes care of all the accounts & wages amongst lots of other things, and brilliantly manages all this in just 1 day per week. Clearly a very important part of the team!


Emma Dunkley 

Travelling Head Girl 

A great asset to our yard, Emma is 2nd in charge and also does all our travelling. She’s supremely conscientious and dedicated to her job and the horses. She’s also an excellent work rider and rides Jonniesofa every day.


Cole Harris

Stable Lad

Cole beavers away under Jan's guidance, he’s got an absolutely brilliant work ethic!  Cole is learning to ride and I’m sure will be riding out on the gallops in no time. But for now his work in the yard is invaluable.


Debbie Leach

Work Rider

Debbie rides out every day after daughter Emily goes to school. Having worked for Tim Easterby for many years, Debbie is a really useful rider to have on our list.
