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.

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.


Shanice Walton

Club Role - Membership Secretary












Hi, I'm Shanice, and have been a member of  BDRC for 4 years. I have now joined the committee after thoroughly enjoying being part of the club. I have owned Verni for 7 years and we regularly compete in several teams throughout the year, also taking part in camp and rallies too! Whilst being on the committee I will be looking after the membership as well as organising camp, so make sure you all send me your helping hours
