I just wanted to send a message to say thank you so much for your support. I have found it very difficult to move on after racing, and the support and financial assistance that the National Jockeys Trust gave me has been beyond anything I could have imagined. I was in a very difficult situation where I was emotionally and financially under stress. Anxiety and dependency controlled my life.
With the support of the NJT, I found strength and gained back my life. I am currently waiting for surgery for my knees from the falls and years in the saddle, and hopefully, when l have the reconstructions desperately needed in the new year, this will allow me to create a new career and path in my life. Racing is a very hard industry I left school early and rode the highs of racing. When my career finished, I had no skills to allow me to move forward.
The NJT have given me the continual support and opportunity to create a better future for myself and my family. I am so thankful to the NJT for allowing me to keep my dignity, and I will continue to support and promote the outstanding work of the National Jockeys Trust.
