Very proud of our Polly Holbrook for winning the title of BGA Equitop® Groom of the Month award. Polly’s nomination submission describes her as being ‘simply the BEST’.
Laura Collett MBE comments: “I can trust her implicitly to run the yard in my absence in total faith that all the horses and staff are looked after with the same level of attention to detail as when I am at home. My horses & I are her No 1 priority at work she’s reliable, efficient, fair a great communicator & fun. She’s often one step ahead of me and her great white board motivational messages are always welcomed and on point! I can honestly say I’m privileged to have Polly in my team and it’s enabled when I am away competing for me to truly know I have the greatest Home Groom running my yard so I don’t worry & can do my best at my job. She’s a star & an unsung hero.”
