Richard Dunwoody MBE

Three times Champion jockey Richard Dunwoody is one of Britain's most successful jockeys ever. He was at the forefront of English National Hunt racing in the 80's and the 90s, winning the Big Three races – the Grand National (twice on Miinnehoma and West Tip), the Champion Hurdle and the Cheltenham Gold Cup.

When he hung up his boots at the age of 35 due to injury in 1999, he had won a record 1,699 races and endured 672 falls (a record which he still holds!). He is best known for his partnership with the legendary Desert Orchid on whom he won seven races. Richard was awarded an MBE in 1993 for services to his sport

A racing pundit for the BBC, sports columnist, and inspirational speaker, in January 2008 Richard also completed a gruelling 680-mile, 48-day trek to the South Pole unresupplied and on a new route, one that Shackleton intended to take back in 1915 but failed to complete.

His inspirational speeches cover the driving ambition which led him to become a household favourite in racing circles at only 21 and the focus and determination which kept him at the forefront of National Hunt racing for 15 years and helped him complete his greatest ever achievement reaching the South Pole.

"What a roaring success this event was. It was hugely enjoyable and very interesting. Inspiring." Penny Newton, APM Project Manager

"The feedback has been excellent with everyone thoroughly enjoying Richard’s talk and experiences. It was our most successful event ever…He is some guy!" Gillian Armitage, British Red Cross
