Rory, who has just turned 21, is already NZ’s Champion Apprentice Jockey, has ridden over 340 winners in New Zealand and is now working hard in the fiercely competitive Sydney sports scene and achieving great results.
“At the age of 13, I’d never sat on a horse but was determined to succeed and learnt from many role models. At that age you need the support of all those around you, there are so many distractions!
By age 16, I had ridden my first winners, with many commentators praising my natural ability and passion to achieve at the top level of my profession. There are many challenges , and I have been fortunate to have fantastic people around me spurring me on.
Life Education & HAROLD educate and empower children and young people to make healthy choices so they can live full and healthy lives.
I’m proud to be a Life Education Ambassador, carrying HAROLD over the finishing line and promoting his work in Australasia.”
