Penny Webb, Jemymah Savage and Jo Hinde

Business Management

Between Penny, Jem and Jo, the office runs with wonderful efficiency! Jem came to us in 2012 having worked for a number of top riders, including Pippa Funnell, and having worked as a freelance horse trainer and groom for a number of years. Now a new mum, Jem works part-time alongside Jo Hinde, who comes from a business management background and is a proud collector of horses!  In 2020, Jason’s wife, Penny, retired from teaching, to work full-time within Your Horsemanship.

David Beekes

Horse Care

Zimbabwean David has been with us since 2019, and has proved to be fantastic with all the horses in his care. A highly experienced horseman and competitor in his own right, David is also a dab hand with all the farm maintenance, too!

Part-time Grooms, Apprentices and World Experience

We are so lucky to rely on fantastic weekend and supply staff, ensuring all the horses on the yard are looked after to the best of our ability.  We also welcome apprentice grooms, horse trainers and those on work experience to spend time with us.

Hamish Gillanders

Your Horsemanship Associate Trainer

Hamish Gillanders started as an Apprentice Trainer at Your Horsemanship in 2017, and spent three years working alongside Jason before becoming a Your Horsemanship Associate Trainer, setting up his business at Risebridge Farm in 2020. His calm and thoughtful approach has proved successful with horses from a variety of disciplines and backgrounds, and he is a natural teacher. His main love is Polocrosse, and he has represented Scotland as well as the UK at Open level. He enjoys bringing on 'project' horses to play at the top level and has a knack of getting the best out of any horse he sits on.  We are delighted to have contributed to the development of this talented and dedicated horse trainer, and look forward to supporting his progress in the future. Please take a look at his website hghorsemanship.co.uk

Kerry (Head Groom), Gracie, Jenny

Grooms

The team on the yard is led by Kerry, whose horse care, organisation and dedication is second to none! She is supported by Gracie, who is doing her NVQs with us, and Jenny, who is also brilliant with the sewing machine, should you wish to get your rugs mended!

Penny Webb

Your Horsemanship Online Administrator

Penny, Jason’s wife, grew up on Risebridge Farm and has ridden all her life, representing the UK in polocrosse, eventing at BE Novice level and being an enthusiastic member of the Romney Marsh Pony Club. She gained an Honours Degree in Sports Science and Geography at Loughborough University and pursued a career in sports marketing before qualifying as a teacher. Penny taught PE and Geography for sixteen years, whilst bringing up Jack and Rosie, before joining the Your Horsemanship team in August 2018.

The Family

Keeping the show on the road

Richard and Lindie Hillier, Penny’s parents, rent the farmland and facilities to Jason and are an incredibly important part of the set-up. They are always on hand to lend advice and an extra pair of hands when needed. Jason’s sister-in-law, Anna Kish, is the go-to woman for the beautiful lunches and catering that we put on for courses, and as a UKCC Level 2 coach, also enjoys teaching at Your Horsemanship Camps. Jason’s family in Australia still play an incredibly important role in supporting him, and providing advice.
