Experience, passion & care help to bring out the best in our horses
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.
SAM FEILDEN Julia's nephew, he is the last male in line with the Feilden surname so a lot depends on his survival - that's why he rides five of our wildest horses every morning.
GEMMA WHIFFEN After a brief spell in an eventing yard, Gemma realised there really isn't anywhere better to work than at Team Feilden so we were happy to welcome her back and her smiling presence is greatly appreciated.
SOPHIE JOHNSTONE With a black belt in Taekwondo, it's probably best we don't take the mickey out of her.
ROSS BIRKETT A summer riding out whilst he finds a proper job has now turned into years and we still can't get rid of him. Can usually be found in a saddle, whether it be on a horse or bicycle.
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.
ALAYNA CULLEN Alana, Elena, Alyana, Elaine, Banana...nobody can quite say her name right but you can always be safe in the knowledge that she has been called much, much worse things before.
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.
