Meet our fantastic Team

Vicky Wyatt

Hello, my name is Vicky; I am the owner and head instructor of Flying Start Riding School. I first began riding here at the age of 4, then progressed to become a helper, I returned as a customer with my daughter when she turned 4, and was presented with the opportunity to become the owner in 2014. I worked in the horse racing industry with Martin Pipes, where I gained my experience and equestrian qualifications. I am committed to maintaining Flying Start’s excellent reputation as a fantastic place for children to learn to ride.

The Ponies


Absolute legend of a pony and such a good boy. Gives 110% in what he does.


Our biggest chap, a sensitive soul who looks for praise when he has done something good/well.


Smallest cheeky little boy who loves attention and very nosey.


Always looks like a teddy bear with a big heart and loves going out for hacks. Always breaks into the tack room.


Cheeky chap who always thinks of his belly and eating hedges as a snack out on a hack.


Very laid back pony and takes everything all in his stride. Likes to sleep a lot.


A very handsome boy and loves to jump, needs quiet hands to guide him.


THE BOSS and can be a bit naughty but caring with a big heart.


A small gentleman who likes to keep up with the big ponies. Always hunting for treats, loves a good canter in the field.


Our oldest boy with very wise shoulders on him and always aims to please.
