Pat

I have been at Bowlers for over 30 years. I enjoy teaching all levels of riders and working with different horses, so I have my dream job! Marty, Max and Lincon are the horses I have at the moment. Marty is doing well competing in dressage and enjoys jumping, and Max who likes to go hacking and showing himself off when we go competing I have a black Labrador called Oak.

Rachel

I have worked at Bowlers for 14 years and I am now working towards my BHS Stage 4 - Care qualification. I learnt to ride at Bowlers when I was a little girl, and Pat and Mary used to teach me. I have a horse on loan at the yard called Magic and I like to do dressage on him. When I am not working and riding I like running and I have even ran a few marathons. I really enjoy working at Bowlers and like all the teaching I do. I love all the horses and the other animals especially the pig and the goat.

I have been at Bowlers for over 15 years, and have seen many horses, riders and staff come and go. I have a degree in Zoology and love anything to do with animals which is probably why my favourite animals on the yard are Michael and Gordon. I own Poppy, the mini Labradoodle and have two cats at home called Bella and Little Kitty.

I've been working at Bowlers since October 2013. I started as a volunteer and then became part of the weekday team. After many years I've finally got my dream job! I love working with all the animals and my favourite horses are Hugo and Ivor. I am currently studying towards my BHS Stage 1 in my spare time.

I have worked at Bowlers for almost five years, starting on a sunday when I was a teenager. I am currently studying a Level 3 Diploma in Horse Management at Myerscough College. I have already achieved a NVQ Level 2 (equivalent to the BHS Stage 2), and I am also working towards the BHS Stage 3 and PTT qualifications.

I started riding when I was eight at an Army riding school as my father was in the Army. I have been at Bowlers since I was 15 (so quite a few years!) only taking a few years out to work with a vet and huntsman on Anglesey and another riding school in Aughton. I started at Bowlers as a working pupil gaining my horse masters (the old style BHS stage exams!) and I am now a company director alongside Pat and Mary, who is a sleeping partner. I used to compete when I was younger on Bowler's school horses, only buying my first pony when my daughters, Gemma & Holly were born. Since then we have owned a few ponies which we compete on a regular basis. The ones we own at the moment being Lily, Jonesy and Oakley.
