Meet The Team

Lottie Crane


With Lottie’s extensive background in the equine world and having been brought up on a farm she jumped at the opportunity that Upsall Grange presented.

From a young age Lottie has always ridden and there aren’t many equine disciplines she hasn’t successfully turned her hand to.

During lockdown with nowhere to compete her horses Lottie needed a new challenge. This is when she started her own business selling gallop and arena surfaces. On the back of this stroke of entrepreneurship she was able to buy Upsall Grange in 2021.

Lottie’s plans are to improve Upsall Grange facilities and plans to make it an enjoyable experience for both horses, riders and their families.

Sam McCarthy

General Manager

Sam, Upsall Grange’s General Manager, lives on site with her husband and two daughters.

She holds a National Diploma in Horse Management, as well as BHS Qualifications. With over 20 years’ experience in the Equine Industry: from working in racing and managing an RDA centre, to grooming at prestigious events such as Cheltenham Festival and Badminton Horse Trials. Sam has also worked in retail and customer service, mainly in the agricultural sector.

Sam has now taken a back seat from riding to support her two daughters who both compete their own horses and ponies.

She hopes to make Upsall a comfortable place for all liveries and competitors!
