Point-to-Point amateur jockey opportunity in the Wessex Area

Anthony and Rachael Honeyball have an exciting new opportunity for an amateur rider for the 2017-2018 season with the guaranteed ride on seasoned chaser As De Fer in Point-to-Points.

The Honeyballs are based near Beaminster in Dorset where they train 40 or so horses in exceptional facilities including a vast indoor school and a gallops which has produced many graded winners under rules.

Last season Anthony trained 32 winners, his best so far with nearly £270,000 in prize money. The figures are supported by consistently solid results over several seasons as Anthony and Rachael, a former leading jockey, continue to make their mark.

They enjoy the patronage of leading jumps owner JP McManus whose Regal Encore won the listed Lavazza Jolie Silver Cup at Ascot in December. Last season they also saddled Fountains Windfall to win Aintree's Grade 3 Gaskells Handicap Hurdle.

As well as the ride on As De Fer, a veteran of 36 races with six wins to his credit, the successful applicant will also benefit from regular lessons, including grid work, with Olympic pentathlete coach Jabeena Maslin in the indoor school. Accommodation is available if required.
