Meet the Team

Bridget Speirs

Mum has been the driving force behind my career from an early age. Her involvement with horses began on the hunting field over in Leicestershire where she grew up. She then came to Ireland where she met my father Nyall and the two were heavily involved in the hunting scene here with the Kildare Hunt Club. Dad is another huge supporter and is a great help while we're away at events.

My mum set up a training yard where we had about 18 horses in training - many of which she bred and had plenty of winners! When it became clear eventing would be my focus, she turned all her attention there.

She is always by my side at events and without her, none of this would be possible.

Amy Reid

Amy joined our team in 2014 and has proved a great addition to our yard. She has ridden horses all her life and has now gotten her BHS Stage 1 and HSI Level 1 qualifications and even a qualification in horsemanship! She has worked in both racing and show jumping yards until now so we are really completing the set. She hopes to go on and have a career in show jumping but we’ll be holding on to her for as long as we can!
