Meet the Staff


Karen is one of the owners of the stables. She has ridden at the yard since she was 8 which is many years! This is Karen on Gayday about 25 years ago!



Natalie is one of the co-owners of Palmers, who has always had a soft spot for Jade “the best horse in the yard”. She spent most of her childhood with her arm down the drain, but the muck never helped her grow much!


Ellen works for us full-time, giving lessons and taking out rides in the week and on a Sunday. She is studying for her BHS Stages Exams. She owns her own horse, Jack, a lovely five year old cob. 


Carol has been a customer, helper, staff and livery at Palmers for about 45 years! She learned to ride on a piebald pony called Pickles. This photo is of her jumping on Dipsy. She now owns Earl, which she bought off of us.


Caroline has been teaching at Palmers for 10 years and riding for 16.

She owns beautiful Beau. This photo is of her riding Elvis.



Rhiannon works for us on a Sunday. She likes to ride Leia. When she isn't working for us, she is often helping to look after a few of the liveries, especially Archie and Rocky. She is also frequently seen helping with the Suffolk Punch Horses at the farm at the end of the lane.


Beth is following in her sister, Jessica's, footsteps, working for us now on a Sunday. She owns Clover, so is up the yard everyday looking after her after college.


Ellie usually works for us on a Saturday. She also often helps Beth with her horse Clover and sometimes rides Sox, another livery.


Natasha is now at university, but was still keen to continue working for us, so commutes from uni on a Friday night so she can work at the yard on a Saturday.
