Alison Kent

Chair

Alison worked as a Ranger with Exmoor National Park Authority for 15 years and has specialist knowledge of Rights of Way. She has lived in Somerset for 30 years and, with her husband, runs a small farm near Wiveliscombe with sheep, cattle and her 3 Arabian horses. She use to do a lot of endurance riding at international level and was a regular competitor in the GHR which first introduced her to Exmoor. She now enjoys walking long distance National Trails throughout UK, and exploring new areas on foot, bike or horse using that invaluable tool, the 1:25000 O.S. map!

 

   

Julia Holtom

Area Representative for Parracombe

Julia has lived most of her life in North Devon, and spends much of her time outside, either working as a gardener, riding her pony, Burro, or walking. She takes a keen interest in Rights of Way on Exmoor, and feels extremely lucky to have access to such a good network. 

 

Amanda Hamley

Committee Member

Amanda has always enjoyed pleasure riding and when she had the opportunity to move to Exmoor with its fabulous outriding, she upped sticks from Kent and moved with her three horses, two dogs and cat

Since arriving she has wasted no time in, exploring the area, already putting many miles under her horses’ hooves.

Amanda has organised pleasure rides and riding camps in Kent and Sussex and is keen to gain further support for the WS&EBA and promote its good work.

Jaye Jones

Area Representative for Challacombe

Jaye moved to Twitchen Farm in 1991 where, with her family, she set up and still runs a successful B&B that also offers stabling to guests visiting with their horses.

Her horse is most importantly fun time, getting to an occasional riding club outing, but riding and exploring Exmoor is her real passion

 

 

Shelagh Dean

Committee Member

Shelagh has ridden since she was a small child, and keeps two ponies near her home in Shillingford, where she and her husband have lived for the past 28 years. She rides most days using local bridleways, and occasionally competes in TREC competitions. She is committed to keeping open bridleways within the area.

Peta-Jane Field

Committee Member

Peta-Jane served on West Penwith Bridleways Association’s Committee for eight years in Cornwall and has been riding since she was about six. Forty odd years on, she fell in love with Wizzy, a fifteen year old pba endurance horse. Thanks to Wizzy (and various mad horsey friends!) Peta-Jane discovered the highs - and lows - of endurance riding which she still does on her twelve year old pba, Sprite aka Beewitched. Peta-Jane is looking forward to her role as PR person for the WS&EB, helping, she hopes, to create a clear and unified voice for all horse riders in the area.
