Racing Groom / Work Rider



Fancy a change of scenery? A new direction or to get back doing what you once loved?

Richard Phillips Racing is recruiting for a RIDER/RACING GROOM to join our Lycetts Team Champion three star winning team.

Are you experienced in the horse racing industry and a confident rider of racehorses?

Or do you have experience in other equine disciplines and are interested in finding out what the wonderful world of horse racing can offer you?

Would you love nothing more than to get back into the racing game?

Then please APPLY!

At Richard Phillips Racing, we will give you plenty of coaching and support, as well as further opportunities to develop and learn if you’d like to progress.

We are looking for someone who rides well, will look after our horses with great care and carry out all usual stable duties to the highest level.

Someone who is conscientious, a team player and gets on with what needs doing (rather than hiding in a stable until someone else does).

Someone who has a sense of humour, doesn’t mind a bit of swearing at times and ideally is an excellent cake maker and willing to share.

What we can offer you:

We have 30 lovely racehorses in residence, mostly jumpers but we also like the flat  – and after an excellent season so far, there are sure to be many more winners ahead.

We are a small team and you will be valued and appreciated.  We will even help you celebrate your birthday – there will be cake and candles involved.

We offer an excellent salary and a safe, professional working environment, in a beautiful location.

We also have onsite accommodation if required.

Adlestrop Stables is a fantastic place to work but don’t take our word for it – this year we have been awarded three stars and reached the final of the Lycetts Team Champion Award in 2019 – proving that Richard Phillips Racing is a GREAT place to work.

So if you can ride racehorses, have a sense of humour, are happy to roll your sleeves up and work hard and are not offended by the occasional swearing, please do be in touch.


Team Adlestrop

To apply, please send us your C.V. with details of your previous experience.
