Julia joined the RRP in March of 2017 as Development Manager to promote and contribute to the growth of the RRP and OTTBs far and wide, working with our sponsors, advertisers and supporters and representing the RRP at events. A native of Great Britain, Julia grew up around horses, and immediately after school was a working student for Olympic medalists Jane Holderness Roddam and Jennie Lorriston Clarke. She took her British Horse Society and National Pony Society exams before taking a position with HRH the Princess Anne and Captain Mark Philips. In search of adventure, she spent a year as a working student of classical dressage in Vienna, Austria before landing in the USA and discovering a deep love of racing. After seventeen years training racehorses at East coast tracks she spent two years in corporate America and a stint working with special needs children.
Julia lives in Lothian with her teenage son George and faithful Shih Tzu Ezra. Julia’s hobbies include horse racing, but also swimming, reading and balloon twisting.
