Director & Master Saddle Fitting Consultant

Jade

Jade is the owner and founder of The Saddle Bank. Jade began riding as a 4 year old, and after years of working at riding schools, Jade got her first pony on loan aged 15. Chuckles was a 13.2hh bay pony who was extremely overweight. After a few months of hard work, Chuckles was fit enough to go out and competed at local showjumping competitions, and mounted games.

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.

Master Saddle Fitting Consultant

Amy

Amy joined The Saddle Bank in 2019 as a saddle consultant, bringing a wealth of knowledge and experience of horses with her. Amy started riding as a 6 year old, and got her first pony aged 13. Rosie was a 15.2hh Connie X TB who was mistreated prior to Amy owning her. She was quiet and withdrawn and took a little while to gain trust. Rosie taught Amy to never give up, and keep trying. Amy and Rosie competed at dressage and showjumping.

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.

Since joining The Saddle Bank, Amy has qualified as a Master Saddle Fitting Consultant and really enjoys meeting her clients and of course their owners!

Saddle Assistant

Temeka

Temeka started riding aged 4 at a local riding school. She got her first pony on loan aged 11 and spent many hours doing lots of jumping – her favourite discipline!

After outgrowing her first pony, Temeka then loaned a cob named Alfie who was her absolute soul horse! After 2 years of loaning Alfie, Temeka then purchased him! Sadly 2 years later, Alfie passed away.

Temeka now has a wonderful young Welsh C gelding named Joey who she has backed herself.

Horse’s are Temeka’s passion and she went to Moulton College and completed level 3 in Horse Management, working extremely hard to achieve the best possible grade!

Temeka joined The Saddle Bank obtaining her dream job in March 2021 after many weeks of pestering Jade for the job!

Everyday Temeka brings with her fun, laughter and lots of smiles!

Customer Service Executive

Heidi

Heidi started riding aged 6. Growing up in Newmarket it was only natural that she had various part time roles working in Newmarket as a teenager. Heidi completed 3 years at two different Agricultural Colleges in Cambridge and also Cornwall where she studied Business and Equines studies, gaining her NVQs in Equine Studies along the way.

In her early 20’s, Heidi’s family life changed dramatically. She put her passion of working with horses on hold and went into office work with a customer service focus with a promise to herself that she would return to the equine industry once her family had grown up.

Now her children are adults, Heidi runs a busy schedule with her 7 horses ranging from Thoroughbreds to a Welsh D, and an ISH. Heidi enjoys competing, beach rides and forest rides with her friends. A personal highlight for Heidi was breeding her first ISH foal Dolly in the summer of 2020.
