Jessica Harrington is one of Irish sport’s most recognisable faces, one of the racing world’s greatest trainers and a former Irish international three-day event rider. She has scaled the heights to reach the summits of both flat and National Hunt racing, adept at training Cheltenham Festival and Royal Ascot winners she accept that injury is an unfortunate fact of life, both human and equine.

The 73-year-old is putting her personal experience to good use, teaming up with the Cappagh Hospital Foundation and the National Dairy Council (NDC) as an ambassador for bone health and to raise awareness of World Osteoporosis Day, which is Tuesday 20 October.
