Nutrition is essential to all sports. For the Jockey, it is important to achieve the right balance of food and drinks to maintain health, whilst keeping pace with a hectic lifestyle, and to reduce the risks of a sport that involves making weight on a regular basis.

The PJA Nutrition Team is composed of Julia Scott Douglas (leader), Daniel Martin, Hannah Trotman and Oliver Whiteman. Many of you will have met us at racecourses or will have seen our fact sheets and newsletters. We are there to offer nutritional support with dietary queries, making weight, and menu ideas.

There are several ways for professional jockeys to get in touch with the Nutrition team for advice, support and information or to arrange a one-to-one consultation at a time/venue to suit you:
