North England and North Wales - Area Sales Manager

Jade Walsh

Jade Walsh is the Area Sales Manager for Yorkshire, Lancashire, Cheshire, Merseyside and Manchester.

Horses are Jade’s hobby and passion. Her first job was in the Kings Troop Royal Horse Artillery, which consists of caring for the Queen’s horses, attending the ceremonial parades such as the Queen’s birthday parade and also the Royal Windsor Horse Show. Jade loved this career but wanted to be closer to family up North.

Jade left the army to enter sales and marketing roles within retail. This included EE and Samsung where she could gain knowledge to move into her current role with Carr & Day & Martin.

Jade has her own house in the countryside of Yorkshire and loves her cocker spaniel puppy Tinks. Jade has ridden horses since she was 6 years old, starting at local level showing where she then moved onto county level which led to Horse of the Year Show with her home produced show pony Thirkleby Master Gold.

Now, Jade has a keen passion for schooling, breaking in young horses and competes show jumping in her spare time.

Annie Sharpe

Annie has worked within the equine and farm retail industry since leaving Nottingham Trent University in 2009 where she gained a BSc Hons in Equine Sports Science. She is originally from Yorkshire but lives in Nottingham where she bought a house in 2014 and has been doing it up along the way.

Annie has ridden since she was 7 years old but only managed to persuade her family to allow her to have her own horse when she was 15 and able to look after it herself as her family are not horsey! Since then she has had variety of different horses to ride belonging to other people and has had a go at most of the equine disciplines but in the last 7 years has mainly focussed on Eventing and Hunting.

Annie is very much looking forward to getting to know all the retailers and customers in her ‘patch’!
