About Susan Corbett

Susan Corbett Racing is based in Northumberland – breeding and training both Flat and National Hunt horses. A young team are flexible and have the opportunity to ride work, stable duties, go racing and be part of a successful Three Star Lycetts Team Champion award (2019) yard.

Working at Girsonfield

A small and friendly team who work hard to achieve the best results for the yard.  Last year we went from a Two to Three star Lycetts Team Champion Award. All new staff members have an induction course and a mentor on the yard till they get to know the ropes.

The Trainer expects that the new staff will want to learn and grow in the job and training will be given to each member of staff to help them achieve their aims. Horses are mainly National Hunt but we have some Flat horses that we have had good success with. Great owners who are interested in the staff that look after their horses. Work is varied from working on the gallops to schooling depending on ability. We have a monthly incentive award as well as equal shares of pool money for full time staff. Each year we host a Racing Welfare BBQ for Owners and Staff.

The Open Day is a chance for staff to show off the horses they look after and to round off the year we have a staff and Owners Christmas party. Uniforms for on the yard and going racing are supplied.
