Wednesday Wisdom: Jackie Potts on how to treat mud fever

We are seriously loving William Fox-Pitt’s new Youtube channel. It’s great to see what goes on behind the scenes at Wood Lane but also super interesting to meet the rest of the team and pick up some top tips from Super Groom, Jackie Potts.

Jackie has been with William for 27 years and as head groom is an integral part of the team. In 2006, nominated by William, she won the Groom of the Year Award, and in 2014 won FEI Groom of the Year. She and her beloved dog Tatts (a gift from William at Tattersalls 3DE one year!) are based at Wood Lane.

With mud fever causing us a few problems with one of our older polo ponies, it was great to watch Jackie’s top tips for dealing with this winter woe.

And there’s more great advice from Jackie in her Hoof & Foot Care film below:

There are lots of videos to watch on the channel, from meeting the horses to learning William’s top tips and techniques and more from Jackie.
