New partnership for Handwoven Browbands and Georgia House Racing


Handwoven Browbands has announced a new partnership with Georgia House Racing. To celebrate this partnership, Handwoven Browbands are running a competition to win up to £700 worth of prizes. The winner will receive a six month syndicate share in one of the yard’s promising young horses, with a chance to visit the yard and watch their horse at the races as an owner. Runner up prizes of a top quality portrait photo shoot with Sweet –Images Photography and a custom made headcollar and lead rope set from Handwoven Browbands are also on offer.

Trainer Joey Ellis and her small family team, consisting of her husband Johnny and mother Angela at Georgia House Racing, take a refreshing approach to racehorse training with a very ‘horse centred’ focus when deciding the regime for each of their horses in training. Each horse has regular turnout, downtime and rest from the track as the team believe that ‘happy horses make winning horses’. Joey has a background in racing and was also a very successful show rider having ridden her own horse Blue Streak in the Ladies Diamond Race at Ascot then going on to retrain him to take SEIB Champion in 2007, 2008 and 2009. The following year he also stood overall TARRA Supreme Champion. A truly wonderful combination and the essence of what retraining racehorses is all about.

Georgia House Racing want to change the typical view of racehorse training and demonstrate to the public that as racehorse trainer, Joey uses the similar values of other professionals within the fields of eventing, show jumping and dressage when training horses.

“I am incredibly honoured to be working alongside this fabulous hardworking team,” said Laura Howland from Handwoven Browbands. “The ethics they demonstrate as a business with the horse’s physical and mental interest at the centre of their methods really struck a chord with me. The team wear my handmade browbands in the yard’s and owners’ colours daily on the gallops and at the races, and I am very proud to be able to provide them to the team.”
