Wise Crack & Diamond Duette & Invite Only & Ballyvaughn
Jodie met Nicky over twelve years ago now when she sold "Reconee", an advanced mare who made the most amazing schoolmistress at the lower levels. She continued to help Nicky, teaching clinics at her yard in Princes Risborough and occasionally riding Conny at events which was always a lot of fun. In 2009, Nicky very kindly decided to buy a young horse for Jodie to produce and for her to follow whilst taking a bit more of a backstage riding. Since then they have had the most amazing time watching their very talented and jointly owned "Wise Crack" go from strength to strength all the way up the grades to CCI**** level. A somewhat testing horse at times, it is Nicky's light-hearted, practical and positive approach that has enabled Cracker the time to develop unpressurised. Nicky is inspirational in every way and Jodie is very grateful for all her support, kindness and help over the years. Badminton, Burghley and a British Team are their aims so Nicky has since purchased a share in a couple more talented young horses to increase her chances of getting there! It's fair to say that Nicky is Jodie's most loyal long standing owner and one that is very much at the heart of her success.
Sara & Dom were previously in a syndicate with Jodie part owning John & Stefanie Lawrence's "Rocketman GD". Also sourced in Madrid by Jodie, Spanish bred "La Chunga" is a half sister to "Borghese", bred by Jose Manuel Perez Arroyo. Jodie thinks the world of this young mare who has already proven to be a superstar in the making and is thrilled to be sharing this exciting journey with Sara, both having the same passion for horses and enthusiasm for the sport.
Attack Van De Peerdebos
Jodie met the Levrau / Dehoorne family in the summer of 2017 when Laurence and her daughter Manon came over with their horses to base themselves at ALW, experience eventing in the UK and train with Jodie. It was such a successful trip that they returned a few weeks later and since Jodie has started running regular clinics in Waregem, Belgium. Jodie is incredibly excited to have taken on the ride on Laurence's pride and joy "Arthur" and both look forward to watching this new partnership develop up the grades. Passionate about horses, eventing is a hobby for the whole family and Jodie has high hopes for Manon's potential chances of making a Junior Team. She is a very naturally talented young rider and with scheduled training stints in the UK, Jodie takes great pleasure in playing a role in helping achieve her goals.
Diamond Duette & Invite Only
Lisa is a really close friend of Nicky's and spurred on by all the fun and success they have had with Wise Crack, has joined Nicky in their latest projects "Diamond Duette" & "Invite Only". Lisa is great fun to have around, really down to earth and pragmatic with a fantastic sense of humour, she is passionate about the horses and a truly lovely person to be involved.
Liz came on board with Lisa Kent & Nicky Coates in part owning and running "Invite Only", a striking TB sourced at the Monart Sales back in 2014. It's been an adventure to say the least but finally they are starting to reap the benefits with Cooper coming on leaps and bounds under the care of Jodie and her team.
Emma is one of Jodie's best friends, having met all those years ago at Tiny Clapham's yard when Jodie first moved to the UK at the age of 19. Both then lived together and first ran their yards alongside each-other at Aston-le-Walls, sharing the same approach to producing and caring for their horses. This makes it a little easier for Emma to pass the ride of her pride and joy "Soltair Justice" over to Jodie whilst off games and pregnant. Beautifully produced up to CCI**** level by Emma and successfully completing Burghley in 2017, it's a truly special adventure for both to be able to share such a wonderful horse.
Annabelle, team physio but also one of Jodie's closest friends, having both worked for Ann and Nigel in their teens, is the proud owner of "Highland Patriot" purchased as an unruly failed racehorse. However over the years he has blossomed into quite the horse and more recently with stable jockey Hippolyte achieved some fantastic results at Intermediate and advanced level. Extremely busy with her own successful equine physio career, her horse is Annabelle's passion and very much enjoyed by the whole Galt family, including Papa G who is rather competitive about Peter's outings!
Hiarado & Direct Ballytarsna du Carel
Jodie first met the Cabourne family when she sold Katie her JRN mare "Fatima Blush" with whom she had great success in the Novice under 18 classes. As a result Jodie has continued to source Katie's competition horses with "Direct Ballytarsna du Carel", "Hiarado" and more recently "Cairo" who was found in Belgium. The Cabournes are big supporters of Jodie and Katie has very much become part of the family, combining her studies and her riding with all three of her horses based at ALW. Katie is a lovely, kind person and a very competitive young rider who now has a super string of horses to achieve her goals under Jodie's watchful eye and guidance. The Cabournes have been incredibly loyal to Jodie over the years with Penny equally as passionate about the horses as her daughter taking on the role of caretaker at all the events!
Teamar & Olympic Colours
Ella has been a pupil of Jodie's for probably 5 years now, originally sending their mare to Jodie for some show jumping training whilst working on both horse and rider confidence as a combination. Ella went on to find her horse of a lifetime in "Teamar" and has successfully produced him up to Intermediate / CCI** level. Having always had the horses during family holidays, Teamar has since arrived as a full time resident, kept in work ready to go for Ella whilst she is busy studying in London.
Lucie has come for intense periods of training with Jodie during the school holidays for a couple of years now and is an absolute pleasure to teach. Hard working and passionate about her horses, Jodie sourced "Cuvera" for Lucie in Belgium at the start of the season and is looking forward to seeing their new partnership develop! Cuvera is based full time with Jodie whilst Lucie focuses on her International Baccalaureate this summer.
Jodie's family have been a huge support over the years with eventing in general but also occasionally coming in on potentially exciting horses for the future. Named accordingly "Family Affair" is owned by Jodie's brother and sister Jake and Jemma as well as Jodie's most longstanding owner Nicky Coates.
