Mark Atkinson
Mark Atkinson
Role: The Boss

Mark has spent years of hard work bringing his Action Horse shows to perfection. He threatens to retire from the riding side every year, but we're glad he hasn't managed to tear himself away quite yet

Jill Atkinson
Role: Admin, Accountant, Co Chief, Clothing Mistress

Jill is the foundation on which the team is built. She provides us with coordination, organisation and, often, lunch!

Ben Atkinson
Ben Atkinson
Role: Trick/Stunt Rider, Actor, Writer

An expert trick-rider with a talent for envisioning new and creative ways of putting himself a hair's breadth from extraordinary danger, whilst still having the presence of mind to make sure that any nearby cameras get his good side.

Lucy Atkinson
Lucy Atkinson
Role: Stunt Rider, Team Manager

If a team-member isn't pulling their weight, you can be sure that Lucy will be there to hit them with a broom. This girl does everything the guys do, but in a dress

Zach Roberts
Zach Roberts
Role: Trick/Stunt Rider, Writer

The perfect mix of Stunt Man and Gentleman. He takes tricks and falls in his stride, but wait! Don't swoon yet - he's about to do something amazing!

Charles Barrett
Charles Barrett
Role: Trick/Stunt Rider, Actor, Writer, Sword Choreography

Good things do come in small packages. Charles is just as happy presenting as he is riding and fighting, so long as he can find a way to show off... and maybe find a tighter-fitting costume

Michael Collin
Michael Collin
Role: Stunt Rider, Actor, Writer, SFX and Tech

Mike relishes the work behind the scenes, as well as the performances themselves. He pulls his stunts alongside an acting career with which he brings any role to life, but given the choice, this guy loves to be evil!

Glen Lean
Glean Lean
Role: Stunt Rider

Saving Mark and Jill, Glenn is the longest serving Action Horse performer. He has a long career of filming under his belt, as well as shows which date back to his days at the Royal Armouries at Leeds, where he first met the Atkinsons. An ever reliable horseman and proficient with a variety of weapons, we're always relieved when Glenn's in on a show. Oh, and don't worry, he calls everyone Luvvy.


Ground Crew


We are also very fortunate to have a dedicated ground crew team. Enabling us to work as a full team in all aspects of our shows writing, rehearsals and amendments. Our ground crew are trained to deal with any situation, often calling them to work with fire, explosives and in difficult combat situations. All are stunt/combat performers and regularly train together on swordsmanship and new choreography.
