Jo Foster

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 hunting and whips in to the Pendle Hunt. She regularly takes the racehorses for a days hunting if they need sweeetening up or a change of scenery. She loves the job. She also loves skiing if opportunity and time allows. Jo is a very keen charity fund raiser, including for the IJF and the Countryside Alliance. Read her journalistic skills every Saturday in the Yorkshire Post – her column ‘Over the stable door’ is very popular.

Peter Foster 

Loves driving the box to the races and getting a free dinner! Peter is a farmer, Point-to-point trainer and the box driver. Unsuccessful at gambling so beware of his tips but has a good strike rate with training the pointers. Always on hand for the manual work in the yard – fencing, repairing tractors…what would we do without him!

Becky Ogg

Becky works on the yard most mornings and enjoys her riding out. She lives on a farm near Pateley Bridge is very good at turning her hand to everything, she gets stuck in to any task and is full of common sense. She enjoys going racing, is a very hard worker and always always has a smile on her face.

PETER WILLIAMS

Jo’s partner Peter is usually to be found sat on a tractor or helping in the yard on his days off working as a Land Agent. He professes to being a begrudging help but he really loves it – and has proved to be a natural on board the racehorses and can settle any puller without realising his gift. Always there to fix and mend…he earns his keep well.
