Meet The Team
  1. Liliane Widdows
    Hi my name is Liliane. I have ridden horses from an early age & worked in an eventing & youngstock yard. I owned a horse for 15 years and I showed him (Connor) to a high level. Connor competed at RIHS and HOYS as a HW Cob . Sadly Connor is no longer with me. I still keep my hand in by riding friends horses and I have been lucky enough to compete on Jo Cocker's lovely cob Robbie. My day time job is a sports coach and my main sport is netball. I teach at junior and senior Kings School as well as coaching club netball and university netball . So if I am not riding a horse I am either coaching or playing netball!
  2. Jo Cocker
    Hi I'm Jo. I am one of the founder members of the club and am also Chair of BRC Area 10. When I'm not organising Club or Area competitions and events I like to compete my HW cob, Robbie, in Showing and Dressage and my Highland colt, Breeze, in Showing (looking forward to him being ridden!). I also have a Welsh D that Sam rides for me. My day time job sees me travel my way round Africa and South Asia to livestock farms. If you have any questions on the club please don't hesitate to ask one of us, we are a friendly bunch!!
  3. Sarah Williams
    Sarah came from a non-horsey family but has ridden since the age of 6. In that dim and distant past she enjoyed all Pony Club activities and local shows, keeping her 2 ponies until they died aged 29 & 30. With a husband who was against getting another equine, somehow she acquired Fabby – the first in a long line of ponies and horses for the family. She still loves being a ‘horsey mum’ driving the lorry most weekends so Amy & Buddy, although grown up, can compete around and outside the area. Her interest in recent years has been Quadrille and she is very proud of Moat View’s amazing record.
  4. Sam Prior
    Membership Secretary
    Hi my name is Sam and I have been with the club for 6 years. I took over the membership secretary position about 2 years ago and I also write the newsletters. I like to compete my veteran mare Daisy, who is 23, in showing and dressage, we have had a lot of success locally and at county level in small Riding horse classes but now we just do the OAP stuff. I have also been lucky enough to join the Quadrille team for the last two campaigns, which was an amazing experience and it just proves that you shouldn't write off the older horse. I work full time as a HR Manager for a clothing retailer and I am always on hand helping out at shows and events.
  5. Jon Payne
    SJ Team Captain
    Hi my name is Jon i have been riding for about ten years. I have competed in show jumping but now leave it to my daughter and granddaughter.
  6. Buddy Allum
    Buddy is a founder member of the Club and has served on Committee for many years. She started riding and competing at 5 and today has two horses. Parky has been with her since 2000 and has been in 5 winning quadrille teams and is a valued family member. Buddy’s younger horse, Charme, is a KWPN and show jumper by trade and inclination. Buddy enjoys all riding club activities but her heart is in show jumping these days. When not with her horses, Buddy works for Zenith Mark, part of the Marker Study Group of which another member is Equesure who kindly sponsored the 2015 MVRC Quadrille Team.

  8. Debbie Amara
    Junior Rep
    Hi my name is Debbie and I started riding when I was about 10 and used to compete locally on a little Welsh cob that I used to ride. When I started working I brought a part bred Arab with my dad and used to show jump regularly with her. I now tend to take more of a back seat and while my granddaughter competes.
  9. Chris Parker
    I was lucky enough to have been born in the saddle, being a farmer's daughter with a horse crazy mum. Had lots of fun travelling all over with the ponies, mainly WHP and BSJA foxhunter classes. I continued with showing and showjumping after the move to horses, although have been less competitive/ travelled less far, in recent years. I now have a home bread rising 5 year old as a lovely project and hope to do lots with her this summer. Looking forward to having lots of fun with her and the club in the future!
