THE TEAM

Emma Forsyth

Emma Forsyth
Rider

Formerly Emma Humphrey, Emma Married Hugh Forsyth in June 2014. Originally from Bunny in Leicestershire, she enjoys shooting (at a novice level!) and helps with the catering at her husbands shoot. She is trained in Sports Massage and is very interested in diet and home made heathy eating; if Emma did not ride horses for a living, she would probably be a Dietician. She loves to travel and was part of a charity team who completed an Arctic Challenge in 2013.

She has been backing the young horses with Nicola for 7 years and together they have backed over fifty horses. Her ambitions are to ride well at CCI4* and train and compete at Grand Prix Dressage.

Cyril Embrey

Cyril Embrey
Supporter & Owner

Emma's most prolific supporter and owner since she was 15 years old. He guided and assisted Emma in a fatherly way throughout her career. Quite frankly, if it wasn't for Cyril's help Emma would not be doing what she is today. He owned more than 15 horses for Emma but in recent years bowed out of ownership, but remained a tremendous supporter of the sport. It was therefore with the greatest sadness that Cyril passed away in February 2017. He will be missed so much by us all.
