I have been born and bred into the point to point world, so I am only too familiar with what is required for this most worth while charity. After watching the coverage on nationwide last November, I thought it was something that I could do so I applied and here I am now.
I have wonderful memories of racing from spending my school years riding out for my uncle Jimmy and working for local point to point trainer Liam Burke for 9 years. I was very lucky in my time with horses that I got to work with some great people/horse and also got the opportunity to ride in point to points.
I am delighted that I am now in the position to give back to a community that gave me some of the best memories of my life so far. I don’t under estimate this challenge, as from my previous experience the level of fitness that is needed is incredible and its really not until you’re in the situation that you fully understand the level it requires, but I will give it my best shot and looking forward to the challenge of raising €10k.
Please help me help them by giving whatever you can using the 'Give Now' button. The more people that know about Irish injured Jockeys, the greater their impact, so please also spread the word by sharing my page with your friends and family. Thank you in advance for your generosity, it means a lot!
