Jo has been in charge of Woodlands Stables for ten years, serving seven years for Michael Jarvis before continuing in the same role for Roger.

Jo's dedication and passion for the horses in her care is outstanding and the results from Woodlands speak for themselves. In recent years Jo has overseen the careers of Group 1 winner Rainbow Peak, top stayer Opinion Poll and Royal Ascot winner Eton Forever among countless other winners.

Jo's attention to detail is second to none. She works closely with the vets and takes great pride ensuring that all her horses are impeccably turned out. She is a role model to all the staff she manages and they all look up to her and are in admiration her work ethic.

We are all hoping that Jo can follow in the footsteps of secretary, Jim Hiner, who won the Administration Award last year.
