Meet The Team
  1. Liliane Widdows
    Hi my name is Liliane. I have ridden horses from an early age & worked in an eventing & youngstock yard. I owned a horse for 15 years and I showed him (Connor) to a high level. Connor competed at RIHS and HOYS as a HW Cob . Sadly Connor is no longer with me. I still keep my hand in by riding friends horses and I have been lucky enough to compete on Jo Cocker's lovely cob Robbie. My day time job is a sports coach and my main sport is netball. I teach at junior and senior Kings School as well as coaching club netball and university netball . So if I am not riding a horse I am either coaching or playing netball!
  2. Jo Cocker
    Hi I'm Jo. I am one of the founder members of the club and am also Chair of BRC Area 10. When I'm not organising Club or Area competitions and events I like to compete my HW cob, Robbie, in Showing and Dressage and my Highland colt, Breeze, in Showing (looking forward to him being ridden!). I also have a Welsh D that Sam rides for me. My day time job sees me travel my way round Africa and South Asia to livestock farms. If you have any questions on the club please don't hesitate to ask one of us, we are a friendly bunch!!
  3. Chris Parker
    I was lucky enough to have been born in the saddle, being a farmer's daughter with a horse crazy mum. Had lots of fun travelling all over with the ponies, mainly WHP and BSJA foxhunter classes. I continued with showing and showjumping after the move to horses, although have been less competitive/ travelled less far, in recent years. I now have a home bread rising 5 year old as a lovely project and hope to do lots with her this summer. Looking forward to having lots of fun with her and the club in the future!
  4. Sam Prior
    Membership Secretary
    Hi my name is Sam and I have been with the club for 6 years. I took over the membership secretary position about 2 years ago and I also write the newsletters. I like to compete my veteran mare Daisy, who is 23, in showing and dressage, we have had a lot of success locally and at county level in small Riding horse classes but now we just do the OAP stuff. I have also been lucky enough to join the Quadrille team for the last two campaigns, which was an amazing experience and it just proves that you shouldn't write off the older horse. I work full time as a HR Manager for a clothing retailer and I am always on hand helping out at shows and events.
  5. Jamie Sheehy
    Junior Rep / Child Protection Officer
    My name is Jamie, I was like a golf widow but a horsey one when I met my wife nearly 30 years ago, I soon progressed through the ranks as the groom and now I judge locally. I bred Dartmoor ponies for ten years, three of those years I was on the council for the Dartmoor Pony Society. I was the Walmer Horse and Dog show director for four years as well as running some local shows of my own. I now focus on my daughter competing mainly in dressage, but occasionally I will show one of our ponies to keep my hand in.
