Rebecca started riding when she was four, eventually progressing into show jumping and rode at international level for the Welsh junior team. Her first job in racing was just 10 miles down the road with Peter Bowen. She then went to America where she worked for Richard Mandela and Dan Hendricks.

On returning to Wales, Rebecca began training on her father’s dairy farm and trained her first winner in 2008 with Mango Catcher. She went on to train eight winners in her first real season in 2008/09 and built on that again when sending out 25 winners the following season.

Rebecca has developed a strong reputation for sourcing young untouched individuals and developing them into the finished article. She has brought a lot of nice young horses into the yard, which has been seen to great effect on the racecourse.

Rebecca’s rise as a trainer in such a short space of time is a testament to her hard work, dedication and natural ability. Rebecca, so far, has trained four Cheltenham Festival winners with Teaforthree, At Fishers Cross, O’Faolain’s Boy and Irish Cavalier and more recently high profile 2018 Scottish Grand National winner Joe Farrell.
