How did you get into racing?
Through my family – I started with pony racing and once I had left school I went to work for Paul Nicholls for four years as Stable Staff and progressed to becoming an amateur Point-to-Point jockey. I then became a freelance Amateur jockey riding out for various West Country based trainers before I started training pointers myself.
What training have you done?
I completed a Foundation Course at the BRS and then my Cat B Jockey course plus the three one week Trainers Modules required to get my licence.
Do you have a further career ambition?
My ambition was to get my licence and trainer under rules.
Why do you enjoy your job?
You have the highs that you dream for with the horses running well and happy owners. Nurturing a young horse to be a success on the track takes patience and is massively rewarding when you achieve it.
