Kyrle Arscott, part-owner of the Court Jester:

The Court Jester, the advanced horse that I share with my friend Diana Chappell has been with Sammi since May 2013. Sammi is a hugely talented and patient rider and Jester has become a happy and relaxed horse who is giving me and Diana an enormous amount of pleasure.  Team Birch is a thoroughly professional yard; all the horses look amazing, they are beautifully produced, we are kept fully in the picture, and we are always made welcome to watch lessons or even just visit for  cuppa – none of this can be taken for granted in a busy yard and we really appreciate it.


Sammi’s team is led by the fabulous Hels – a Head Girl par excellence. Everything is done properly and not rushed – no short cuts are taken.


I cannot recommend Team Birch enough – Jester, Diana and I are lucky to have found them.




I am extremely grateful to all my owners for their support and the opportunities their horses provide, especially  SUSAN LAMB, JOCELYN RILEY, PARKFIELD BREEDING, ROWLAND & ALI FERNYHOUGH, JOHN BIRCH AND LYNDON & JUDY MCLEOD.


BECOMING AN OWNER: Whether you have your own horse and are looking for a professional rider to compete, or you want to buy a share or join a syndicate, please do give Sammi a call: 07711 890420
