Rachael started out in the eventing world working for international event riders and competing up to intermediate level before the racing took over.
Her initial point to point victory, aged 19, was while working for Robert Alner in 2002 at Ston Easton on Ski Seal who was trained by Anthony's mother, Sue. Rachael later joined Richard Barber's stable where she became National point to point champion, riding over 100 winners on the point to point circuit and over 50 under rules so far.
In 2009 Rachael joined up with Anthony’s yard and brought along her valuable experience acquired whilst Richard Barber's Head Girl.
With the backing of Anthony Honeyball racing and his owners, she managed to secure the Stobart Jump League Bronze Category riding 20 winners – 27% strike rate in 2011/12 season.
Over the last 3 years race riding has taken a back seat for Rachael. She has become the mother of 2 beautiful babies - Harry and Hattie. Rachael continues to ride out 3 or 4 lots each day, and is very much hands on with the running of the yard and the decisions of where and when the horses run.
