Brenda Turner started Hurst Farm 30 years ago. In her earlier years she enjoyed every discipline of riding, competing at show jumping and eventing before turning to pure dressage. She is an experienced teacher and trainer at all levels from novice to advanced. She enjoys training her horse at home, competing these days more for fun.


Brenda runs the yard together with her daughter, Mrs Jo Wood. Jo has represented Great Britain at home and abroad at Grand Prix level. Her younger horse Calyzmann is now beginning to compete at Prix St Geroge. Jo competes clients horses at all levels, training horses and riders at home and away.

Roger Turner, husband and father, has built every part of Hurst Farm. His expertise is valued by all. Roger constantly maintains and updates all the facilities.

David Hunt comes to the yard at regular intervals to help with the training of their own horses as well as their clients.
