Senior Staff

Jamie Turnbull

Assistant Trainer

Jamie came to the yard in December 2014 with experience gained at various racing yards, including latterly Nick Williams. Jamie rides out but is also in charge of the veterinary issues and the welfare of the horses. He is very conscientious about his work and thoroughly checks each horse weekly, reporting any issues to our vet Eugenio. He is also on hand for any of the riders or yard managers to ask if they are concerned with their horses. He oversees both yards and reports to Lucinda and Scu on each horse at their daily meetings. Jamie loves a day at a point to point in his spare time and riding in his local common riding festival, enjoying the festivities with friends and family. 

Jaimie Duff

Assistant Trainer & Travelling Head Girl

Jaimie rode out at Arlary while still at school and joined in 1995, many years ago... more than half her lifetime! She became Assistant Trainer in 2000 and with the expansion of the yard in 2013 Jaimie became responsible for planning the travel logisitics and the race day organisation. Jaimie often does the long distance travelling and will oversee their work if they are away from home. Having been here since we started Jaimie is an important part of the team and has made a huge contribution to the success of Arlary House Stables.

Ciorstaidh Macgillivray

Head Girl at Arlary

Ciorstaidh became head Girl of Arlary in November 2016. She oversees the running of the yard and horse welfare. With a degree in bio-veterinary Science from Lincoln her help is invaluable. She has also begun to study for her masters in Equine Science at Edinburgh while still maintaining a high standard at the yard. In her spare time, she breeds her own spotty horses and plays the odd game of netball. 

Jordan Scobie

Head Girl At Kilduff

Jordan joined us at the beginning of July 2013 having just completed her final year at school.  Coming from a showing background, this is her first experience working with racehorses and she has adapted well to a different way of doing things.  She completed her nine week foundation course at the British Racing School in August 2013 and then returned here as a full time member of staff. Jordan has impressed us so much in her organisational abilities that while at first she was promoted to yard manager at Kilduff she rapidly became an assistant head girl there. In May 2016 Jordan took on full responsibility at Kilduff, overseeing all the barns, the daily routines and care of the horses and the veterinary recuperation care. Jordan enjoys going to music gigs in her spare time, she shares Scu's following of Slash, and riding her horse Crackerjack Lad who she hopes to compete in Retraining Of Racehorse classes.

Beth Clark

Assistant Head Girl At Arlary

  Beth joined us on work experience in July 2013 and has stayed ever since. She is an organised sensible girl who oversees the yard at Arlary first thing in the morning, feeding and checking over the horses. She rides out and uses the therapy machines on any horses who need them, reporting back any problems to the yard managers. In the summer of 2014 she attended the British Racing School for her foundation course and was promoted to assistant yard manager at Arlary in November 2014. In 2018 she rode Bescot Springs in point to points, and he has now retired to be her showjumper and riding club horse. In the summer of 2018 Beth was promoted to assistant head girl, helping Ciorstaidh on the yard as well as continuing to ride out a couple each day. Beth's hobbies include shopping and spending time with her friends and family.
