G & T Saddles With Sponsored Riders Jake Taylor & Alex Holman

Jake Taylor

Jake is an incredibly talented young professional rider with high aspirations. Jake has been a rider and groom for Carl Hester for three years full time, and now on a part time basis as he establishes himself as an independent rider based in South Herefordshire. At Carl Hester’s, Jake gained invaluable experience from unquestionably one of the best establishments in the world, with one of his primary roles being to prepare and warm-up Charlotte Dujardin’s horses from youngsters to Grand Prix horses. From Carl’s yard, Jake also competed in Young Horse Classes.

Prior to being based with Carl in Gloucestershire, Jake spent 2 years training and working with Matt Frost and Adam Kemp, then a further two years for the highly acclaimed Half Moon Stud. It is from the Half Moon Stud that Jake found his current partner, Half Moon Delicata (Treacle) who he is training towards Grand Prix with. Treacle is a sensitive mare who Jake has carefully trained and is currently riding in a Black Country Dante Dressage Saddle provided by G&T Saddles.

Jake is currently based at Weir End Farm, close to the A40 and M50 near Ross-on-Wye and is available for teaching and clinics – an aspect which he very much enjoys and receives incredibly positive feedback from clients owing to his patient yet enthusiastic nature.

Alex Holman

Terri sold Alex a saddle for his first horse a few years ago and are proud to witness what a remarkable, intuitive and dedicated rider he has become. Alex is 18 years old and at the beginning of his eventing career, which we believe makes it so crucial to give the sponsorship and support required.

At the end of the 2015 season, Alex moved to be based with Dickon Reader in the Forest of Dean and gained additional sponsorship from Ascot Buildings as their young rider for 2016/17.

Alex has previously been based with 4* rider Tim Cheffings and Katherine Robinson.

Alex has an incredibly exciting 7 year old, purchased when a working pupil. Alex is aiming to complete his first International 1* in the 2017 season, with a view to being selected for Young Rider GB Team.

By 15 she had won the British Dressage Talent Spotting Final at Junior level. Meg is an honorary member of the West Midlands Dressage Group, which she’s been a part of since she was 8.

In her Junior and Young Rider years, she competed nationally and internationally up to Prix St George, representing Great Britain in Holland, Italy, Spain and at Home internationals on her old advanced mare, Equilibra Niky. Her current horse, Caesar Hansbjerg, is a 16.2hh, 12year old Danish Warmblood by Weltjunge who she has trained in the last 2 years from Elementary to Prix St George. Work started recently towards Inter 2. They were 10th at the Winter Regionals in the Advanced Medium Freestyle Gold in March 2017.
