    Building surveyor

    West Susses-based Lizzie Feakes is a building surveyor and trains and rides her 12-year-old pointer Oscar O’Scar.

    “My alarm goes off at 5.15am and I’m mucking out at 5.30am,” says Lizzie. “I then ride Oscar, unless I’m working from home when I ride in my lunch break.”

    Oscar is ridden four times a week by Lizzie and twice by her friend George Gorman, with help also from Debbie Dunger on racedays.
