THE RESIDENTIAL WEEK
Our Residential Week is a fun, riding-based introduction to British horse racing and is hosted at British Racing School in Newmarket.
The Residential is specifically for riders aged 14-18 who are from diverse communities, underprivileged backgrounds and urban equestrian centres. We particularly welcome applications from individuals from diverse ethnic backgrounds and under-represented and disadvantaged communities.
Please do not apply if you own or loan your own pony.
You will ride the racehorses at the British Racing School and will receive specialist training from the BRS instructors. You'll improve your skills on simulators and also learn more about looking after horses.
You'll find out more about the world of British horseracing - you'll go racing, go behind the scenes at a top racing yard or stud and also find out about the different careers opportunities in the sport.
Whilst this is an opportunity to improve your riding and horse care skills, we also want you to have fun, meet lots of people and find out more about what makes British horseracing so special.
