Jessica Thorrold

Jessica will be your guide throughout a thrilling day at Quidenham Estate Shoot. She spent many years of her childhood with her father, Philip, feeding pheasants and helping to rear ducks and partridges on the family farm game shoot.

At the age of 10, Jessica learned to shoot with a 4/10 shot gun and began going along to clay shooting grounds where she started to gain valuable experience and knowledge of the sport. By 14, Jessica and her brother Ben were travelling around the world with their father as he competed in major championships. This also gave her a greater understanding of different hunting and shooting traditions as well as cultures around the world.

Jessica now runs the successful Quidenham Estate Shoot as well as being head of promotion and events at the Philip Thorrold Shooting Academy.
