Claire Purkiss


My name is Claire, I am 39 years old and I work for Blue Chip as their Accounts Manager.

I have been doing small business accounts since I was 18 years old, because my favourite subject at school was maths.

I have had horses and ponies for many years; from the age of 8 years old I had a pony called Rupert.  He was quite well known around Sheffield as he taught many young girls to ride and jump; he was a character as he used to let himself in from the field if it was raining and on many occasions we would go to a show and he wouldn’t go back in the box!

I used to ride at the local pony club,MayfieldValleyat Lodge moor.  For many years I was in the pony gymkhana team, and also the show jumping team.

I enjoyed show jumping and cross country for many years up until I had my children, Edward 13 and George 12 years old.

Sadly my last Horse O’Malley died when I was 30, and I never bought another.  He was such a lovely kind horse; I never found another who I felt could ever match up to his beautiful temperament, and fantastic thrilling ride.
