HELEN TAGG:Hels has been an integral part of Birch Equestrian for well over a decade - it literally could not function without her! Supergroom, supernanny  and superwoman wrapped into one, she is the backbone of the team. Her high standards in stable mangement and turnout set the tone for the yard, and if she isn't caring for the horses, she is looking after Sammi's son Charlie. Or her merry band of Jack Russells. You can't have too many apparently.....
KHIA CADNEY-MOON: Khia is an up-and-coming young rider who has competed at 1* already and is setting her sights on bigger things. She has moved her horses to be based with Sammi and helps riding the young horses.
ED & CHARLIE BIRCH: Chief chef, truck driver, and head of entertainment (that's Ed) and cheerleader extraordinaire and producer of incredible nappies (that's Charlie). The two main men in Sammi's life are at every event, congratulating and commiserating, and generally ensuring that everything is kept in perspective.
FARRIER: Greig Elliott
VETS: Spike Milligan
