About Jodie Amos


At a glance

Having grown up with her family in the South of France, Jodie first moved to the UK at the age of 19 to further her studies in History, French and Spanish at Nottingham University.


Jodie was originally trained by Laurent Bousquet, one of eventing’s most highly respected riders having coached the Japanese, Belgium and French Senior Teams at Olympic level. Passionate about her horses and driven to make it to the top, Jodie is a complete perfectionist with a meticulous attention to detail, moulded by her time in France.


Now set up in the heart of Warwickshire running a successful eventing yard at Aston-le-Walls, Jodie is married to Nick Hollick, founder of Honesberie Shooting School and himself a former shot for Great Britain. Bilingual and very influenced by her overseas upbringing, Jodie has a love for learning and traveling which she manages to combine with her eventing, sourcing horses and teaching abroad.


Top Class Setup

Jodie first moved to Nigel and Ann’s base Aston-le-Walls in 2004 where she worked and rode for the Taylors, eventually putting her studies aside, choosing to set up her own yard and concentrate on pursuing a career in Eventing. Nigel himself, a prolific event rider in his time with a wealth of experience at top level, has worked with Jodie over the years not only in training but as a mentor, playing an invaluable role in her career. 

Jodie also has help from Robert Snaddon in the show jumping phase and Andrew Fletcher for dressage, both sharing a passion for their disciplines, always looking to perfect horses and rider with new ideas and meticulous attention to detail. In addition, Jodie plans regular trips to Yorkshire YRC to train with Team GB coach Chris Bartle, a true master of his craft and an inspiration in every way.


Finally, through the World Class Program, Jodie has been incredibly lucky to have the expert advise from a number of specialists in different fields of human and equine sport science and medicine, enabling her to develop a top class support team.
