An extensive background in thoroughbred racing in the UK. Michael was a travelling head lad/foreman for many top trainers which involved driving trucks to all major UK race courses.
After 5 years of subcontracting as a driver to Graham Hill (previous owner of Tamworth Horse Transport), Michael was given the opportunity to take over the business. He believed that the service and existing clients appreciated the top class way in which horses were transported.
Michael believes that all horses transported are all treated to the same high class of care.
An all-encompassing passion for horses has resulted in Sharmayne pursuing a challenging but rewarding career as an accomplished event rider and instructor – and she is equally passionate about both aspects of her career. A trainer / rider / coach and now owner of Tamworth Horse Transport with her husband Michael, gives Sharmayne a well-rounded approach to her career in horses.
