Team Tatt

Support Team

I could not do what I do today without the help of quite a few people. All these people are incredibly important to me and I want them to know that whenever we have success, I might be the one piloting the horse around but without their backing and support , it would just not be possible.

A great big thank you from me to everyone!

Charlotte Overton

Charlotte is Gemma’s Head Girl and an integral part of the team. She works with Gemma on a daily basis to ensure the care and well being of all of the horses and to help get the best from all of them. She travels to training and events with Gemma and makes sure everything (and everybody!) is present and correct.

On top of that she manages all of the staff and makes sure everyone is connected and things run smoothly.

 

Becky Smilie

Becky has been part of the team since 2014 and is a total trooper! She is our assistant yard manager and has the important role of making sure things run as required, especially when we are away at shows. 

Becky has Billy on Air (who she loves dearly) on loan from Ann Black.

Hannah Lavender

Hannah is the second rider and is invaluable helping Gemma work and train all of the horses. She has been with us since 2017 and in that time has become a pretty serious little jockey! She is amazing with the young horses and spends a lot of time working with all the youngstock we have here – most of them orange with white bits!!

Maddie Brookes

Maddie joined us in 2019 and has become a valuable member of the team. She is a great worker and has become a great little rider! She has her pony Dixie here who keeps her on her toes!

 

Leah Clark

Leah joined us as an apprentice in 2019 after her GCSEs. She is a great worker and an important part of the team. She is a very natural rider and has come on leaps and bounds since being here.

Georgia McQuiston

Georgia is doing her apprenticeship with us and is working hard to get her qualifications. She keeps us entertained with her cool cob, Mary!

Elodie Frost

Previously Yard Manager & travelling groom, Elodie is now Gemma’s PA and helps with pretty much everything! When not organising stuff, she can often be found at the stables sneaking a cuddle with Spike (Arctic Soul)!

Mummy Tatt

Gemma’s mum has been a huge part of her success over the years. Without her and also Gemma’s amazingly supportive father, she would not be where she is now. Although Mummy Tatt has taken a slightly easier role now, she is still a huge part of the team and her opinions and extra help is valued greatly. Gemma is very grateful to them both and knows how lucky she is to have their support!

Behind the scenes…

Gemma has a team to keep her on the road including her now fiancé, Gary Stevens who can be found driving the lorry, putting up jumps and generally keeping Gemma in check! Also, her best friend Emma, who is often supporting at events and taking photos for the website. 

There is also Emily Mumford at Inkpot Sports Media who does all the social media and helps keep that side of things together.

Lots of others, including very supportive family who have always been Gemma’s biggest fans.
