Janet, Ted and Tamsin Conyers are the yard owners and with Tamsin's partner Darrell Torrens we hope to keep updating Weston's facilities, and keep making it a place people are happy to keep coming back to.
Having got her love of horses from her mum Janet, Tamsin has ridden all her life. She had ponies as a child and was a member of the West Kent Meopham branch of the Pony Club. Moving to Norfolk in 1985 she joined the West Norfolk branch where she achieved her B test. She always loved show jumping and got the ride on an old JA pony who showed her the ropes. After working for a point to point yard after gaining her BHS qualifications at college she decided to get out of Norfolk and trained for 6 months with Lars Sederholm and his family in Oxford. She then got a job with International rider James Fisher and rode and competed his novice horses. At that time she was looking after his World Cup horses, novice horses and keeping the yard going while he was competing abroad. After 4 years of being there it was time for a change so she went and worked for a rider jumping in the Florida Winter Festival. " Amazing place, i'v never seen anything like it." On returning to the UK she got a job with Duncan Inglis, top producer of young horses. This was where she met her " horse of a lifetime" My Life. She started riding her for Duncan when she came over from Germany as a 5 yr old and the partnership was formed. She bought her and never looked back. Leaving Duncan after a year and a half in Sussex she then spent a year with Stuart Harvey, riding lots of young horses and working on the yard but realising if she wanted to compete seriously in her own right she had to come home and set up her own yard. Coming back to Norfolk she started training towards becoming an Accredited coach for British Show Jumping. Gaining that and also her UKCC Level 3 specialising in show jumping. Tamsin and My Life competed all round the country and includes good places at Hickstead, Scope and many others. Their favorite venue being Royal Norfolk just down the road. My Life , now retired at 24 years old has had 3 foals and has settled down to a very pampered retirement and has pride of place in the barn. Al though she may have to come out of retirement and take part in veteran classes as she seems to have so much pep left in her she would like to sparkle in the show ring!
Having produced 2 top Grade A mares Tamsin is now looking for her next top horse and is hoping one that she's bred will make it to the top.
