Racehorse Trainer based at Richmond, North Yorkshire

Wednesday 4th September – Special video!

We have been eagerly waiting to bring you this special video of ‘Green Oaks’ created by Max Bradshaw – and here it is….what an amazing yard this is to train racehorses and a wonderful place to work and live too. Thanks to Max for his stunning work.

Last night we enjoyed a ‘goodbye’ send off at La Piaza in Richmond for Meg & Issey. Our Secretary Anna made them this stunning cake – a big one to go round so many of our expanding team!

Jack Olley was the youngest of the party at 5 months old and he was perfectly behaved, kept amused by his many fans!

Newly moved into the staff house is Hannah Welford, pictured below – she hails from Whitby and has recently worked at Jefferson’s. A nice quiet rider, we hope she enjoys her new job at Green Oaks.

Also recently joining us are Michael & James, two experienced work riders – and we also welcome back Stacey to a full time position, she has been completing her degree and is now enjoying her riding out again.

Lily Frank has been riding out regularly, a family friend for many years, Lily is an experienced rider wether on the gallops or schooling arena, and is another valuable asset to the yard; everyone bringing different experiences and skills with horses.

We’re loving being busy and getting so many additions to the Winter Team – Equine & human, and last but not least we welcome the start of future Apprentice jockey, Nick Barret-Atkin starting   full time for us- Nick has been riding out at the yard for a couple of years now and couldn’t wait for his GCSE’s to finish to he could start his career proper!

No runners today but several declared for tomorrow and a preview will be posted this evening with yet another video! I can’t pretend mind will be anywhere near as good as the one above though…
