Lesley took over Cae Iago Riding Centre at the end of 1998 when Lesleys
parents, Morag and Charlie, decided to retire.
Lesley has spent all her life at Cae Iago and has been involved with the business since
she could ride. She worked for the business full time since she left school at the age of
17 with the exception of one year spent in London and Northern Ireland. She has been a
ride leader since she was 17, a partner in the business since she was 24 and involved in
every aspect of the operation.
Lesleys special talent was taking complete beginners and helping them to enjoy
their first experience on a horse with confidence and safety. Few people can have
introduced more people to the joys of horse riding than Lesley. However, these days, she gets few chances to ride, consequently we no longer take complete beginners. Lesley is always happy to help and advise anybody.
The Welsh Trekking and Riding Association have awarded her their highest qualification,
Operators Diploma, in their officially recognised training programme.
Lesley works very hard running the whole business: the house and kitchen, as well as the riding. She is an excellent cook and enjoys producing
the sort of home made cakes and meals few people have time to prepare for themselves these
