ANNA SAMSON - TRAVELLING HEAD GIRL
Anna has been working for us since summer 2017 when she became our Travelling Head Girl. We have both known Anna for a long time as she used to be Head Girl for fourteen years for Mrs Anne Blaker who Chris was stable jockey for back in the day. When Anna was younger she was always bought up around horses, doing Pony Club in her local area in Sussex and she was also heavily involved in the showing world before she became involved in racing. She has a good record in the point-to-point world having ridden over 20 winners and with this experience and knowledge she is a good asset to our team. As well as being our Travelling Head Girl she also is a work rider and rides out everyday. She also is currently living and in a relationship with ex-jockey Dai Tegg, who back in the day would have been a great pilot and rode plenty of winners including Flakey Dove. He is currently working for Clive Cox but is still a work rider for us and regular part of team.
What got you into horses?
She was brought up with ponies doing Pony Club and Showing and then Point to Pointing.
Describe a perfect day?
Riding out in the nice weather, then going racing in the afternoon and bringing a lorry load of winners home. However, if it’s a day off then it’s having a lie in then seeing she the day takes me.
What would you be doing if you didn’t work with horses?
I would have liked to have been a veterinary nurse.
