PPORA Sponsor Charlie Poste retires from race-riding – find out more about his plans including qualification as a Jockey Coach
Good luck to PPORA Champion Novice Rider Sponsor Charlie Poste who announced his retirement from race-riding yesterday.
Alongside partner Francesca Nimmo, Charlie has great foundations already in place for the future in the form of a thriving breaking / pre-training yard, and their successful Pointing operation, based near Stratford upon Avon.
Charlie and Fran’s huge enthusiasm for novice riders – notably this season Harry Arkwright, Luke Scott, and November-December PPORA Jockey of the Month Gordon Hopkinson – was underlined by their enthusiastic sponsorship of the PPORA Champion Novice Rider Award – won by Luca Morgan. Asked to get involved Charlie had no hesitation in saying “Yes!”
With qualification as a jockey coach well underway Charlie will undoubtedly be in demand in that role too. Busy times ahead.
With their wedding fast approaching in September – we wish Charlie and Francesca happiness and success!
