Mel and her husband Phil train from Poplar Cottage Farm, near Bridgnorth in Shropshire. Phil is an extremely good stockman, having had cattle and sheep all his life, and so has a very natural feel for an animals general wellbeing. The balance between feed and exercise is crucial to keep an animal at optimum performance levels, and his expertise in this area is invaluable and has clearly paid dividends over the last few seasons. Mel has the technical expertise to ensure that all the horses are worked as correctly as possible on a daily basis. This develops core strength and an all round fitness that cannot be achieved by fast work alone, and this in turn helps keep them sound, supple and mentally capable of coping with the rigours of racing.
