Introducing our newest content creator Natasha Monnery!

As we head into the summer we have some new content creators on board. Much of the group have already worked with the Careers in Racing team on various projects, assisted on Explore Days and created a mix of content with us. We now meet our newest member Natasha Monnery who joins us from the show jumping side of the equestrian world! She bring her experiences, with a mix of Marketing & Media, plus she works at the well know Hickstead Showground.

Hello Natasha, welcome to the team tell us a bit about yourself?

Hi my name is Natasha, I’m 21 and have been mad about horses for as long as I can remember! I currently work at Hickstead Showground, the home of British show jumping, working with the team to organise and run international competitions.

How would your friends describe you in three words?   

Kind, Funny, Cheerful

Flats or Jumps Racing? 

Very difficult to choose! But if I had to, the Cheltenham Festival probably just tips my favour towards the Jumps!

How long have you been connected to the industry? What first attracted you to the sport?

When I was just a few weeks old I made my first racecourse appearance at Warwick, so my dad shared his passion with me from a young age! And it has been our favourite thing to do ever since. We are part of the Varian Racing syndicate, it’s great to have the opportunity to be behind the scenes at the stables and gallops, and see all the hard work pay off on the racetrack.

What’s your favourite racing memory?

I was lucky enough to see Frankel win the Lockinge Stakes at Newbury when I was 11yrs old. I treasure a Frankel poster from that day, signed by Tom Queally and the late great Sir Henry Cecil.

Any Hobbies?   

Going racing, Horse riding and travelling!

What do you enjoy most about creating content/working in the industry?   

I love being able to watch the new up and coming talents of the sport, both the horses and people, and being able to share this passion with others.

Do you have a favourite racehorse?   

You’ve probably guessed it, but my all-time favourite horse has to be the superstar Frankel!

Favourite racecourse?   

Goodwood for the flat, Cheltenham for the jumps.

Race/racecourse around the world you would love to visit?   

The Melbourne Cup in Australia, or to be at Cheltenham on Gold Cup Day!
