Hey! I’m Fern, 22 years old and the owner of 18 year old Gulliver who is still 8years old at heart! I was born in Jersey and have always had a love for animals. This is definitely shown through my job at Jersey Zoo, being a Mammal Keeper. I look after a range of animals from the meerkats, otters, macaques, silvery marmosets that free range in our tamarin woods, the bats who live in our wonderful tunnel to our Andean bears and howler monkeys housed in first impressions.

I was very fortunate that my parents could send me for lessons at Le Claire’s before I was able to work for my rides, which lead me to become a freelance groom. August 2020 I took on G, who I was absolutely terrified of schooling but loved hacking. Now, alongside many supportive friends and Home Farm, we have begun competing and jumping this year. I hope we continue to smash goals this year and in the future as well as helping people out, the same way so many did for me:) But first I need to pass my trailer license, which is a challenge in itself! Give us a wave if you see us out and about 🙂
