Meet the team

When visiting Braeside of Lindores Farm you’ll always meet one of the friendly and welcoming Black Family.

Anna Black, manager, is eager to help and is passionate about providing equestrian experiences to suit all abilities, budgets and needs. Anna trained at Lindores Cross Country as a member of Angus Pony Club.  She knows only too well the adrenaline and incredible bond a rider can have with their horse. Don’t hesitate to get in touch or ask a question!



Vicki Honeyman – joined in April 2021 and has been a fabulous addition to the team!  Vicki is friendly, helpful and 100% focused on customer experience.  She spent a decade volunteering in a Fife riding school before her professional careers as a dancer, lecturer and chartered accountant.  Vicki is passionate about horses and has her own horse Ellie here at Lindores. A keen horsewoman she loved her 1:1 training with our British Eventing Course Builder in her first month of joining the team. Anna and Vicki are on hand to help with all bookings and experiences here at Lindores.



Liz Jeffrey – joined in Jan 2022 for a 10 week placement as part of the Scottish Enterprise Redesigning Rural programme.  Liz brings a wealth of business management and equestrian knowledge to the team.  As the businesses at Lindores continually evolve and grow, the team has also had to grow and we’re delighted to have attracted a true talent!  Liz is also very friendly and is reaching out to many of our existing clients to ensure we develop the business in line with your needs.  More innovations and improvements are coming in 2022!



In 2021, we began a new partnership with Paul Ellis, a Gold level Accredited British Eventing Course Builder. In addition to carrying out course inspections, he advised on the fantastic renovation of our water complex. We are very much looking forward to his forthcoming visit. Look out for course updates on our social media.

David Wilson, BE Accredited Course Builder has been a great member of the team.  David has been designing and building bespoke fences at Lindores since 2014 until 2020 inclusive. He has ensured the cross country training ground has been built and maintained to BE regulations.

James Oakden, BE Accredited Course Designer and coach has 38 years equestrian experience. He designed the 2016 water complex which has since been extended by a third in size in 2020.


Richard and Richard who farm Braeside of Lindores often greet you at the farm, help sign in or drive visitors up to the course.

Friendly and chatty Richard Black Snr is especially great at keeping the log-burning stove burning in The Bothy!

Lindores Cross Country exists thanks to Frances Black founder. Frankie had the foresight to launch central Scotland’s first ever training course with Maggie Livingston in 1989.  She launched the course hosting Olympian Ian Stark OBE and Lorna Clark training clinics and since then Frankie has seen family generations visit, train, laugh, cry, grow and improve.
The team at Lindores look forward to welcoming you.
