The Team

Zoë Horne, Business Owner

Equine Experience and Qualifications:

Ponies and horses have been in Zoë’s life for as long as she can remember. Her first pony Springton April Star taught her much about falling off, while her second pony Storm Bird was the perfect pony in every respect. Purchased perhaps the wrong way around?

From an early age Zoë revelled in all Pony Club activities and regularly competed her ponies at local and county level, occasionally with success.

A weekend position at the age of 12 on a thoroughbred stud farm and licensed racing stable ensured Zoë caught the racing bug. Upon leaving full-time education she embarked on a career in the horseracing industry.

Obtaining an amateur jockeys licence Zoë rode with limited success on the racecourse. With experience came responsibility and positions as head groom and assistant trainer beckoned.

Zoë holds the internationally recognised Level 3 Vocational Qualification in Racehorse Care and Management. In addition she has gained the Institution of Occupational Safety and Health Managing Safely certificate and is first aid trained and has undergone an enhanced criminal records bureau disclosure.
