Hi I am Kate.  I have been a member of B&D now for 4yrs, and have owned my horse Ben for 5yrs(crazy ex-racehorse).  With the help and support of everyone in the club and instructors, we have competed on several of the teams.  So when you are next at a rally and see a horse spook, spin or leap off the floor(with or without a jump involved) it is probably me!!


Jill Mcfarland

Club role: Secretary














Hi, I joined the Riding Club Committee after enjoying being a member for a few years and feeling like I should give something back. My horse is the fabulous Basil. A little coloured Irish horse with the most perfect temperament - friendly, keen but very rarely silly. Despite his (and my) lack of natural talent we are true allrounders and will have a go at anything but our real love is cross country. Keeping Basil company is my daughter’s outgrown Welsh pony who we enjoy doing a little driving with.



Lucy Baggs

Club role: Vice Chair/Show Secretary  

Tele: 07984873322

Hi my name is Lucy and I have owned my horse “Puzzle” for 9 years. He is your typical trotter but after 9 years we are slowly turning him into a dressage diva. I joined the riding club having no confidence at all, well that has certainly changed. The rallies and instructors are brilliant for gaining confidence and making new friends. I also manage the team dressage for the club which is a fab role and has also provided some friends for life.


Sally Thorne

Club role: Treasurer

E Mail:













Hi, I am Sally and have just joined the committee as Treasurer. I have been a member of BDRC since 2015 and have owned the wonderful Miss Mouse since late 2013. Representing the Senior age bracket, I have thrown myself in to as much club activity as I can (while I still can!) and have had so much fun and made many friends along the way. BDRC is a warm, welcoming club and I hope to add to that whilst keeping the books in order.

Club Role - Membership Secretary

Hi, I'm Carrie, and have been a member of the BDRC for 2 years after returning following a stint living in London. I have a young horse called Gizmo that I have had for just a few months, we mainly hunt and enjoy fun rides, but love camp and rallies too! Looking forward to continuing his education throughout 2017, you might even see me out side-saddle with him!


 Justine Jackman

Club role Dressage Clinic and newsletter co-ordinator



Hi! My name is Justine Jackman. I live in Wickwar with my husband and two children. I have been riding since the age of 5 and have always had my own horse since the age of 14. My horse is called Mac; a 16.2 bright bay gelding by Masterpiece. He is a dressage diva (though he'd probably like to do more jumping) and is just starting out on his BD career. Aside from my family, he is the love of my life! I help organise the dressage clinics at Burrows Court and am now also responsible for the riding club newsletter. Please feel free to send me stories and pictures of your experiences and outings on your horses - I'd love to hear from you!




Jo Dyer

Team Manager


My name is Jo, I joined the riding club at the end of 2014 to get back into competing after having my third child and joined the committee last year. Horses have always been a big part of my life, I've been lucky enough to breed and compete many Homebred's. One of which is my beloved Rosie that I'm currently competing BE novice/ CIC * . I'm a British horse society professional coach and love being given the opportunity to teach for the club. I look forward to getting to know more of our members at rallies and other events.
