Dreams become inevitable if we have the courage to pursue them
Jo was a successful Amateur rider and now trains the horses. She brings her wealth of knowledge to producing and training, riding out daily and working closely with the jockeys. She likes to concentrate on the horses individual requirements to train and place them according. Any spare time Jo enjoys skiing, hunting, extreme sports (an adrenalin junkie is one way to describe her) and she whips-

Dawn has worked in racing before and loves leading up her winners. She has been with us a few years now and travels in every day from her home near Leeds. She has ridden in a number of charity races and won them all on our own Houndscourt. She will be riding in August for the IJF at Catterick next. She does have her own horse she keeps nearby and loves cats. She is good at keeping everyone on time, and is a very competitive lady.
Jordan joined us just in time, November, the day Jo had her serious accident. He has worked in racing before and enjoys brushing and plaiting up…. err well maybe not – he’s a strong rider who gives great feedback and always notices the little things. He thinks he’s really funny so we don’t want to tell him that sometimes he actually is, and he looks a lot like Jesus – in fact, he might be.
Alicia has been with us for a few years since she arrived in a work experience placement from Askham Bryan College where she was studying an equine diploma. She is a very quiet, light rider who settles the more excitable horses well. She is also very much a perfectionist, everything looks immaculate when Alicia has been on the case. She is a real asset to the team, popular, always polite and good fun.
