JudeSpinneyRole at Snowball Farm: Event Groom                           

Length of time at Snowball Farm: Just over 6 years

How long have you been riding? Since I was 6

Can you remember winning your first rosette? It must have been at clear round showjumping at the yard where I rode.

When you are not around the horses, what is your favourite thing to do? I am usually at the yard when I’m off as well.

Jude Spinney(4)What’s the best bit about your job? Looking after the horses, seeing them do well and getting individual relationships with each one.

Proudest moment?  Watching Coco come 3rd in her 1* event with Natalie. She was the smallest horse in the class. (…and maybe when I eventually passed my HGV test)

Funniest memory? Need to think about that

Can you tell us something people might not know about you? Until I was 17, I never wanted to work with horses, as I thought it was too hard. Then I was offered a job on Saturday at the yard I rode at, and that was it! I never looked back.
