Put a name to a face and find out more about our team below.
Director & Founder
Jade eventually got her own first horse aged 17. A beautiful jet black thoroughbred ex race horse named Billy, who although at times was very uncooperative, made a stunning show hack. Sadly 8 years later it was found he had kissing spines and was sent HEROs horse charity for ex race horses.
Since then, Jade has thrown herself into business which is her true passion in life.
Achieving a First Class BA (Hons) degree in Business, Jade is a passionate and driven business woman, and enjoys all aspects of business.
Jade is also a Master Saddle Fitting Consultant, yet spends most of her time running the business and buying Pizza’s for the team.
If Jade were a horse, she would be a fiery chestnut Thoroughbred mare. She is strong-willed, determined, and driven and takes the herd to new pastures. She will shake her head and stomp her feet if she doesn't want to do something. She is the alpha mare of the herd.
Master Saddle Fitting Consultant
Since then Amy has achieved a First Class BSc (Hons) degree in Human and Equine Sports Science covering everything from anatomy to nutrition to biomechanics relating to how the horse moves. Amy gained experience working at a local racing yard, aswell as working at a stud dealing with foals, stallions, backing and schooling competition horses. Amy then went on to run her own business producing horses for sale, whilst competing British Dressage up to Elementary level.
Amy uses her expert eye to thoroughly check all saddles which come through the door to ensure they are sound and fit for purpose.
Since joining The Saddle Bank, Amy has qualified as a Master Saddle Fitting Consultant. When she is not working at The Saddle Bank HQ, she really enjoys meeting her clients on saddle fit appointments and of course their owners!
If Amy were a horse she would be a typical, reliable, yet nimble Connemara pony. She turns her hoof to everything and will jump everything put in front of her. She is a true all-rounder.
Customer Service Buyer
She now spends her time competing British Dressage at Medium level with her stunning horse Gio, a 10 year old KWPN gelding. In her spare time she is also a trainee judge for British Dressage.
In 2021, Victoria purchased an IDXTB foal called Double Time Devotion or ‘Dev’ for short. She hopes to event him in the future.
Joining The Saddle Bank in 2021 as the Customer Service Buyer, Victoria is responsible for purchasing and making sure The Saddle Bank is well stocked.
If you have a saddle to sell, Victoria is your gal!
If Victoria were a horse, she would be a Dutch Warmblood. She loves to get plaited up, put her dancing shoes on and perform to the best of her abilities.
Although Adi is not a rider, he has a passion for the business and picked up the lingo really quickly! Adi has been around horses for a while and has sat on Jade’s old horse a couple of times.
If you call through to The Saddle Bank, there is a chance you may speak to Adi as he loves talking to people!
If Adi were a horse he would be a Shetland pony. Friendly and approachable, yet can be headstrong, stubborn, and uncooperative, particularly towards the Alpha mare.
Poppy joined The Saddle Bank in 2023 as a Saddle Consultant. She is responsible for packing all of your wonderful orders!
If Poppy were a horse she would be a Chestnut Welsh Section D mare, headstrong, stubborn and sensitive.
Customer Service Advisor
Yazmynn now shares a beautiful 16.2 Irish sports horse called Bella. She is so honest and gentle and loves her work, especially if it involves poles.
Yazmynn joined The Saddle Bank in 2023 as a Customer Service Advisor. She is on hand to help you answer any questions you have when it comes to buying or selling your saddle!
If Yazmynn were a horse, she would be a Friesian. Having a calm and docile temperament and a willingness to learn; being friendly and versatile.
