Rob is best known for his partnership with the popular grey gelding, Courtney Z, whom he has partnered for almost a decade. The pair have had success in Nations Cups, county shows and 3* Grands Prix. The gelding is consistent and even in his teens gives the younger horses a run for their money. Apart from Courtney Z, Rob also produces young horses and has some exciting ones coming through.

Matt started learning to ride at 6 and bought his first pony at 10. Through his teenage years he competed in many disciplines and, following his A-levels, went to work on professional yards where he first sat on a dressage horse. He spent a spell in Denmark training as a professional dressage rider before setting up his own business in the UK. Matt has since represented Great Britain and been placed at International CDI level.

The hashtag, #GoBurto, needs no explaining! In 2016 alone, Chris won the CIC3* at Belton, an Olympic team bronze medal and lifted the Burghley trophy, and that was on just one horse – Noblis 18! He also won the CCI3* at Samur on Santano, was a member of the Australian Nations Cup team, who were victorious at Aachen, and took the 6 Year-Old World Championships, at Le Lion D’Angers, on Fire Fly.

Dan started riding early, originally on the farm bull! He was a keen Pony Club member and achieved his A-Test with honours in 1986 (a feat that few have achieved even to this day). He won the British Dressage Talent Spotting in the same year which helped Dan decide that horses and dressage, rather than farming, would be his chosen career. Dan worked in Denmark and has been fortunate to have been trained by many of the world’s best riders and trainers. All have helped to shape Dan into the rider and trainer he is today, but none more so than Judy Harvey and David Hunt. He now trains with Carl Hester and competes internationally at Grand Prix level, has a string of exciting young horses, and teaches riders throughout the UK.

Nick has been riding since he was 11. He progressed through lessons at local riding schools, to 'borrowing' ponies in exchange for mucking out. Nick was a member of the Beaufort Pony Club, taking part in their team events and progressed into BE a bit later on. Quite simply Nick started to do quite well, managed to get a few rides and sponsors (like Baileys!), built more stables and the rest, as they say, is history!

Whilst it was almost inevitable that Polly would end up pursuing a career involving horses, it was her Young Rider horse, Poggio, who gave Polly her first real taste of success . In 1995 they were part of the gold medal winning team at the European Championships, finishing 6th individually, and they went on to complete Badminton and Burghley.
 
Later, Polly came tantalisingly close to winning Kentucky CCI*** in 2003 with her own Tangleman but was pipped to the post by Pippa Funnell en route to her historic Rolex Grand Slam.

For Ben, the road to becoming an event rider began with a cheeky little dun pony known as Rabbit who brought him his first lot of success, winning at most of the local shows and the first ridden championships at Ponies UK. After working for Hannah Bate, he went on to seize the chance to work for William Funnell, gaining valuable experience in the world of show jumping, as well as eventing through William's wife Pippa Funnell. Ben’s talent was encouraged and then refined to the point where he won the U21 National championships. He went on to be selected for the World Class Start Programme, followed with selection for Britain’s young rider squad, giving him the chance to compete with the very best in the Europe.
