Joanna MASON

Granddaughter of Mr Easterby, Joanna now rides as a professional jockey after being one of the country's top amateur riders. She shared the Lady Amateur Riders championship with Serena Brotherton in 2015, both having six wins. Three of her winners were aboard Tapis Libre.

In 2017 Jo won the prestigious Queen Mother's Cup at York on Tapis Libre, trained by her cousin Jacqueline Coward. The following month the same partnership won the Ladies' Derby at Epsom for the second consecutive year.

In January 2020 Jo was successful with her application to represent Great Britain in the Fegentri series in Martinique in the West Indies.
