Our grand passion
They say a horse is not a gentle hobby, to be picked up and laid down like a game of solitaire. It is a grand passion. It seizes a person whole and once it has done so, he/she will have to accept that their life will be radically changed.
Snaith Racing is a family business of professional horsemen established in 1974. Succeeding the legacy and reputation of Chris Snaith are brothers Justin and Jonathan, who were raised in the yard, learning the ropes, riding work and learning how to run a successful stable from the ground up.
When they took over the reins in 2000, they added youthful energy, innovation and enthusiasm, but the founding principles of team work, hard work and the belief that the more time you spend with your horses the better they get remain evident at the heart of Snaith Racing and continue to deliver results.
"A happy horse is a winning horse."
