Meet the people who make your dreams happen
CAITLIN WELLS Swapped a career in dance for a life in the saddle. It remains to be seen whether she regrets it when the weather is at its worst - at least a dance studio has a roof.
POPPY FULLER Her apprentice career was short-lived but she did manage to ride a winner at Wolverhampton when they used to race on green stuff. Has since tried her hand at a variety of things but a love of horses drew her back.
GEMMA WHIFFEN With a collection of goggles, hat silks and gloves, Gemma has single-handedly kept Gibsons Tack Shop in business recently but at least you'll never see her looking scruffy on the gallops.
ROSS BIRKETT After three years at university and two winters working in Dubai, Ross still can't find a proper job so remains Julia's personal slave. He does all the jobs no-one else wants to do, including carting the guv'nor around after she's had a few wines.
CHLOE PEACOCK After surviving a childhoood in Norfolk, she managed to sneak past border control into the pleasant green pastures of Suffolk and has yet to be caught.
JOHN BIRKETT It took 13 years of co-habitation and two kids along the way but John finally decided Julia Feilden was the wife for him. After surviving 25 years' service at Royal Mail, he now mucks out, drinks tea and runs Newmarket Equine Tours.
ADAM BESCHIZZA Before you ask, it's pronounced 'Biscuit-sir'. He's heard all kinds of different ways to say it during his riding career but the best has to be when a trainer thought it was 'Adam The Skip Man'.
SHELLEY BIRKETT Riding winners pony racing and as an amateur wasn't enough for Shelley so she decided to become an apprentice jockey. With a purse that opens as often as Woolworths nowadays, she enjoys buying discount clothes and eating free meals.
SARAH MACDONALD Has spent her whole working life in racing around the world but still managed to find time to have a child. Now she comes to work to have a bit of peace and quiet.
