Time for a new feature; Meet the crew 2020
We start off with Mel our yard manager at Touchdown MHH.
“When I was 18, I started work at Grange Riding Centre until it closed in 2008 then I taught at the Cabin for a year until I found out I was pregnant in mid 2009.
I started at Touchdown in 2019, I have 2 kids and a stepson and live with my partner. Getting this job was a dream of mine and I always wanted to help horses in need.
Interesting facts about me:
1) I was a finalist in the British Equestrian Federation groom award in 2006. I didn’t get placed but did get a special mention. The winner was William Fox-Pitt’s groom, Jackie Potts and in 3rd Place was Zara Phillips groom, Catherine Owen
2) As well as having 2 horses (my oldest and first horse pictured below on FB) I also have chickens. I love chickens. I have just under 30 . If money was no object I have loads of horses and thousands of chickens .
3) I was diagnosed with crohns disease 2 1/2 years ago. I’m in remission but some days I am completely drained of energy.
So that’s a wee bit more about me.”
Below you can slide the pictures to see my by day with the chickens or with my horse 🙂
