LAST NIGHT, TG4 gave a behind-the-scenes look at the challenges facing women in horse racing. 

The first in a two-part series, ‘Jump Girls’ heard stories from top female jockeys such as Katie Walsh, Rachael Blackmore, Katie O’Farrell, Lizzie Kelly and Lisa O’Neill.

Directed by Luke McManus and produced by Touchline Media, the film was extremely well-received by viewers. Here’s a sample of the praise:
