“I love horses and I love to travel, my job at RED MILLS allows me to embrace both of these passions. I get to travel all over the world meeting top class trainers, owners and horses. Mixing with people who are as passionate about the equestrian world as I am. What is not to like?!”

Outside of work Rebecca loves to go racing – both Flat and National Hunt. “I live within walking distance of Punchestown and am often to be found at Naas, Leopardstown or The Curragh. I also love a good day out hunting (whenever I can beg or borrow a horse!)”
