The Team

Breckenbrough is lucky to have a strong home team which enables us to manage and maintain top quality training and horse trials facilities.

Lottie Turner

Studying at Askham Bryan and works for Helen in between.

Riding her own horse Sunny here on the photo.

Jockey John Brewis

John is as the name suggests an ex-jockey. He is willing to put his hand to anything work wise and is always full of fun and keeps us all smiling. The North East accent in the collecting ring is a very recognizable feature as to who he is!

Bella – the Lurcher – is very speedy and regularly slinks off hunting stressing us all out as we run around looking for her.

Kiwi – Red Lab – new addition to the family in 2020.

Puds – a real character always looking for trouble – a typical Jack Russell.
He’s now available as a Stud dog …
Short-legged girlfriends preferably as he would need a stool otherwise 🙈
