Carberry got her first Cheltenham Festival win in 2005 on Dabiroun in the Fred Winter Juvenile Novices' Handicap Hurdle. It was the first time in 18 years that a female jockey won a race at the Cheltenham Festival. In 2005/06, she became Irish Qualified Rider champion for the first time and repeated the feat the next season. At the Cheltenham Festival, she won the 2007 Cross Country Handicap Chase on Heads Onthe Ground, before winning on Garde Champetre in 2008 and 2009, to give her a record three wins in the race.
