LEARN ABOUT RACING
You'll go behind the scenes of British horseracing with trips to the races, training yards, studs, veterinary practices and farriers.
There will be 10 monthly sessions at the British Racing School from Friday evening to Sunday afternoon with more riding and specialist coaching from September 2023 to June 2024.
We’ll cover your transport to and from the course, all your accommodation and food, and will even throw in some riding kit as well, thanks to our friends at Champion Equestrian.
If you've already taken part in pony races or want to get involved, we will help fund additional races for you with our partners at the Pony Racing Authority to build up your experience.
