getting to know
Laura has worked for us for over 12 years, starting out with her friend Clare as a pair of crazy young yard girls who were off more than they were at work. However she has stuck with us and is a much prized member of staff. Work wise our hardest weeks of the year are RIHS and HOYS and this is when Laura comes into her own, organising everyone, being in charge of bathing and she prides herself on sending the ponies off to the show looking the best they possibly can. All the clients will know that Laura is in charge of the rugs and show boxes and is very strict about making sure everything is accounted for. Between her and Julie they undertake all the trimming and show preparation. Laura is also our house sitter when we are away at shows and on holiday.

Favourite Show? Well has to be HOYS as I’m lucky enough to be able to go and watch some of the kids and their ponies. Always lovely to see them so beautifully turned out. And to celebrate the wins with way too much champagne 😂😂

Interesting fact people may not know about you?
When Kate Pong was having pups, Julie and Fiona were at BSPS Summer Champs so I was in charge of delivery- a daunting task but we did get 5 healthy puppies.
