Jemymah Savage (Jem)

Business Manager

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. Jem ensures all the horses’ and owners’ needs are met right from the first enquiry, and keeps the office running smoothly.

Hamish Gillanders

Horse Trainer

Hamish first came to Jason in 2017, in order to gain more experience after spending a year in Australia with some excellent horse trainers. Jason soon persuaded him to stay on as his assistant horse trainer, and just a year on, Hamish has shown how capable he is of handling all the horses we receive for training. Having grown up helping his parents with their Riding School in Scotland, Hamish competed in all disciplines, and has recently represented the UK in polocrosse. He is not only a very talented, and natural, horse trainer, but he is an excellent teacher, too!

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 NVQ’s 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.
