Kelly,and of course her faithful dog poppy, joined the team in the Spring and she has proved herself to be a brilliant asset. Kelly is a very hard worker and a great competition groom. Poppy is proving be be a super yard dog and keeper of the tack room.

Colina’s husband Alex is hugely supportive of her ambitions and has worked tirelessly to install the new outdoor 60x25m school. He also maintains all the fencing and facilities around the yard and can occasionally be found mucking out!

Alex has his own business, Boundrylines, which specialises in traditional hedge laying and fencing. Alex previously worked for Cross Country course builder David Evans Team, building and preparing courses around the country and traveling to Germany to assit in building the course for the 2011 Europeans. Sadly, he has not yet found the time to build Colina her own set of Cross Country jumps!

Olympia, Colina's mother, has always encouraged her career, especially whilst she set up her business - not lease of all by providing her with a yard from which to base herself! Olympia was a keen horse women in her day but now prefers gardening to mucking out!
