BHA Coach Educator Sue Ringrose wins prestigious national coaching award

The British Horseracing Authority has today confirmed that Sue Ringrose, a longstanding Coach Educator for the BHA Jockey and Rider Coaching Programmes, has won “Coach Educator of the Year” at the prestigious UK Coaching Awards.

Sue beat off competition from 324 nominations across all sporting disciplines at a ceremony in London last night, 5 December.

Sue Ringrose said:

“It was an absolutely fantastic night and I was overwhelmed to receive such a prestigious award. It’s been a great journey to develop coaching within racing over the years and to have that work recognised is hugely rewarding.”

Gill Greeves, Vocational Training Manager at the BHA, said:

“Sue’s contribution to industry training in British racing cannot be overestimated. She has been instrumental in the improving the careers of hundreds of jockeys, members of racing staff and in developing the BHA’s coach education programmes.

“The competition was stiff at the awards last night with nominations from around the UK, but Sue is a hugely deserving winner for all the years of hard work and dedication she has put in and we are thrilled for her.”
