Hi! My name is Poppy Bridgwater, I'm 20 years old and have had my apprentice licence for a year. I am based with Tony Carroll in Pershore, which is about 20 minutes from Cheltenham, one of my favourite racecourses I'll sadly never be able to ride at! I've had 32 winners and around 330 rides. I am really looking forward to the season coming, I'm hoping to loose my 5 pound claim this season, and hopefully make some new connections with new trainers.

I am delighted to now be sponsored by Harrowells, I'd already a bit of knowledge about them when Georgia Cox flew the flag last year, so am delighted to have their name on my breeches this season!

Very much looking forward to the coming weeks when my boss will start having more runners. With a bit of a quiet spell, all the horses are now fit, healthy and ready to go. I'm especially looking forward to riding a few horses I made a good partnership with last year, like Pour La Victoire, De Vegas Kid and Baltic Prince to name a couple...and hopefully can my first winner for Harrowells soon!
