Harriet Dukes

Welfare Officer

Harriet Dukes : Welfare Officer

I am a Welfare Officer in Malton , My role is very varied and no day is the same. Although I am based in the Malton office I do yard visits, gallop visits and racecourse visits. I enjoy being out meeting and talking to new people.

I love working for Racing Welfare as we help many different people in so many different ways, all with same passion. I feel lucky to work with such lovely people and be part of such a dedicated team.
My previous employment includes working in racing for Paul Midgely There I mucked out, rode out and took horses to the races. After this I worked for a small IT company in marketing.

Outside of work, racing and horses is my main passion and hobby. I have always been around horses and horse racing as my grandfather was a national hunt jockey and my dad has always owned the odd one or two racehorses. I have ridden as an amateur in the past managing to ride five winners. I still ride regularly having my own ex-racehorse whom I'm re-training, with the aim to do some low level eventing this year.
