Noel started training in 2013 from Whiteshoot Stables in Blewbury. In 2016 the whole operation was moved a mere two miles away to the impressive, purpose-built Churn Stables.
Before taking out his own training licence Noel spent the early part of his career as a successful Dressage and 3 Day Event rider, representing the British young Riders Dressage Team, riding at Advanced level Eventing and breaking in and producing many young horses for both disciplines. This was followed by 10 years as Assistant Trainer to Alan King, during which time he was involved in overseeing the training of the likes of top class horses Voy Por Ustedes, Katchit, My Way De Solzen and Halcon Generlades to name just a few.
Noel is well known for his patience with horses, so coupling this with a diverse wealth of knowledge plus his all round horsemanship, he is extremely well equipped to give each individual horse in his care every chance of being successful on the track.
