When he hung up his racing silks at the age of 35 due to injury in 1999, he had won a record 1,699 races and endured 672 falls. He is best known for his partnership with the legendary Desert Orchid on whom he won seven races and was awarded the MBE for services to horse racing.

Since hanging up his boots, Richard has focused on various expeditions including a 350-mile cross-country ski race to the Magnetic North Pole, charitable activities including running marathons and corporate hospitality. He is also a regular contributor to racing and sporting media.

Richard is in great demand as a motivational speaker, sharing with audiences the attitude, commitment and focus needed to get to the top. Richard proves that the skills needed to succeed in sport - and expeditions such as the race to the Magnetic North Pole - are equally applicable to today’s competitive business environment.
