About Martin

Martin , graduate of the NHC in 2019, found himself getting into the racing game a little later in life and hasn’t looked back. During his six-weeks at the NHC he learnt all the practical tasks associated with being a yard person and essentially how a racing yard is run.

Martin works for jump trainer, Ruth Jefferson, at her stables in Norton, North Yorkshire. In addition to carrying out all yard duties Martin also undertakes routine maintenance jobs and takes pride in keeping the grass mowed and the field boundaries secure. Martin is a pivotal member of the team and brings to the job a wealth of experience and transferable skills gained in other industries.

Employment in the horseracing industry is accessible to absolutely everyone. There are no barriers and whatever your aspirations with a positive work ethic and a “can do” attitude you will receive the warmest of welcomes.
