A second female rider lodges a complaint to the BHA about the behaviour of a male jockey… just days after Byrony Frost’s bullying and harassment claims against Robbie Dunne
- BHA have received a second complaint from a female rider against male jockey
- Rider in question is being supported by the Professional Jockey’s Association
- It comes days after Byrony Frost made bullying claims against Robbie Dunne
The Professional Jockeys Association are supporting a second female rider who has lodged a complaint to the BHA about the behaviour of a male jockey.
The incident raises further questions about the culture and conditions faced by female jockeys in the weighing room.
The new complaint emerges four days after details appeared in a Sunday newspaper of bullying and harassment allegations made by Bryony Frost, Britain’s best-known female jump jockey, against fellow rider Robbie Dunne.

The leaked BHA report, submitted in April, was accompanied by a letter informing Dunne he faces formal charges, including ‘conduct prejudicial to the integrity or good reputation’ of the sport.
Dunne denies the allegations and his legal team have accused the BHA of conducting an investigation ‘irredeemably compromised by conflicts of interest’.
The BHA refused to comment on the second case, which has been described as a ‘safeguarding issue’.
