The Team

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 skiing, hunting, an extreme sports (an adrenalin junkie is one way to describe her) 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. 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. She has ridden in a few charity races on her own ex-racehorse and always gets placed. Great fun to have around.

Dawn Henry

Dawn has worked in racing before and loves leading up her winners. She has been with us a year and travels in every day from home in Leeds. She has her own horse she keeps nearby and loves cats. She rode Houndscourt in a charity race, her first ever, and won. She’s a competitive lady.

Jordan Brown

Jordan joined us just in time, last November, the day Jo had her serious accident. He has worked in racing before and enjoys brushing and plaiting up…. err well maybe not – but 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 he that sometimes he actually is, and he looks a lot like Jesus – in fact he might be.
