Stable Equestrian Rider – Sue Chapplehow-Lacey
Hi I’m Susie Chappelhow-Lacey.
Stable Equestrian have invited me on board as the amateur / home produced, trying to juggle family, horses & job.
It was inevitable my life was going to be either horses or wagons or in my case both. With my mum Anne & sister Clare having Crackenthorpe Stud & dad Bob having a haulage company.
Firstly came the love of horses, I ve been brought up producing homebred horses, & riding clients horses.
Secondly came the job to fund the horses. I worked full time (nights) as a HGV artic driver from mr Kipling cakes, tarmacing to chicken poo!
Yes horses were (are along side my children now) my life and I owe everything to the special horses I ve been fortunate to know.
Eventing is my passion but I turn a hand to anything hoys flat or workers, a bit of dressage my nemesis is sj, coloured poles nerve wreaking. Through my time I ve competing to 3*, I was lucky to train with British Young Riders Dressage Scheme.
Also I have taken horses & ponies to HOYS & RI in workers & flat classes and Badminton grassroots championship etc.
Life has changed very much so in the last 7 yrs I now have 3 children and a husband too. I own a holiday let Low Slakes set at the foot of the Pennines over looking the Lake District & Horses are a hobbie. Yes really hehehe.
