Middleham Trainers

Julia Brooke



Julia's story with horses began at the age of two and throughout her childhood/teen years she was an accomplished show jumper. Aged 20 her attentions turned to point to pointing and in an age when the sport was still very male-dominated, she gained invaluable experience with Bill Elsey in Malton. Her ability was soon recognised and with Bill's encouragement she took out her Amateurs Licence, riding successfully on the flat.

The years between then and now have been spent training point to point horses, breaking & schooling youngsters, pre-training racehorses and rehabilitating lame / injured horses. All of this invaluable experience culminated in the decision in 2014 to take out a training licence and in the spring of 2015 Julia was successful in her application to become a Licensed Trainer.

Julia has two sons - Henry Brooke, a Professional Jump Jockey (Champion Conditional in 2013) and Danny Brooke. Both play a major part in the success of the yard.

Training ethos

Julia and the team at Brough Farm are experienced, enthusiastic and proud of what they strive to achieve. Being a small yard enables each horse to be treated not just as a professional athlete but also very much as an individual, and the attention to detail afforded to each one is key to their ability to perform - both in training and ultimately on the race course.
Whilst the horses we train are our priority, we would not have that privilege but for the Owners who share our vision for the success of their racehorse. Accordingly, Owners are always welcome at Brough Farm, or to speak to us at any time by phone or email - the lines of communication are always open... and going racing is the best of fun!
