James and Briony Ewart converted part of the family cattle and sheep farm into a racehorse training business in 2004 and the expansion of the business since that time has been impressive. The team at James Ewart Racing now trains more than 50 horses and is increasingly producing winners, including home-bred champions.

With jump race winners already in the bag, they have recently celebrated their first winner on the flat. Over 100 winners have been sent out from the stables at Craig Farm. They have been keen to innovate, introducing a TapetaTM track, the first training track of its kind in the UK.

Briony Ewart explains how the CX Project has been instrumental in part of the expansion: "When we needed a horse box and mobile stables, the CX Project's help was really important. The grant provided enabled us to house 4 additional horses which required 2 extra members of staff. The horse box is a tremendous asset - it is custom designed for us. The team travels many miles in taking the horses to races all over the country so this is an essential piece of equipment."

The CX Project was also able to refer James Ewart Racing to the Business Gateway's High Growth advisor.
