Club Treasurer: Nicola James 

Nicola has been a Bookham member since 2014, and joined the committee at the end of 2018. She said “I joined to give something back to the Club I get so much enjoyment out of. I realised my childhood dream in April 2014 by buying my first ever horse. Six weeks later I bought a horsebox, joined the Club and haven’t looked back. I wanted to meet likeminded people, competing at a similar level to myself and have the opportunity to push myself. I have represented the Club at Dressage, Showjumping and Eventing. I have been to two National Championships. I now have bagfuls of rosettes, tonnes of photos and continuing to make memories on my veteran horse. I never had the chance to be in Pony Club as a child but Riding Club is the next best thing.”

 

Sarah Jones                                                   

Sarah has been riding for some (sharp intake of breath) 35 years on and off and has owned Milo since he was 5.  She has been a member of Bookham Riding Club for a number of years; a member of the Committee for most of those years. Milo & Sarah will often be spotted on our Endurance Teams.

 

 

Clair Hood 

Clair has been a member of Bookham Riding Club for over 10 years and joined the committee in 2019. She has two ex-racers Miss Bounty and In the Stars (Spooky), and has a go at most things with them!

 

 

Nicola Shepherd 

New to the committee for 2019, Nicola learned to ride largely as an adult and took the ownership plunge in 2016 buying her Cob mare Cupcake. Despite a somewhat late start to horsey life, Nicola loves all things equine and what she lacks in experience she makes up for in enthusiasm and willingness to get stuck in to anything.

 

 

Emily Penney image1

Emily has been a member of Bookham RC for 5 years and is thrilled to have joined the committee. She will usually be found on her coloured ISH, Leo, competing for the eventing, show jumping and dressage teams. Her very old pony, Troy, has also been brought back onto the scenes and is loving having a bit of Bookham RC action too…!

 

 

Angela Duff 

I have been a member of Bookham for a few years competing with my horse Billy along side my daughter Molly and her wonderful pony Caramel.
I am looking forward to future events with them and our new mare Ruby and hope to give something back to this wonderful Club by sitting on the committee this year.
