Introduction to Racing Course

Course overview

If you are unsure whether a career in racing is for you, then why not try it out first?

During this FREE, fully residential 2.5 days spent here at the BRS, you will get to experience the buzz of race day and the excitement of sales, as well as the thrill of the ride on a racehorse.
You will experience the day to day lifestyle of a member of stable staff: waking early to tend to the horses, ride them out and come back later in the day for Evening Stables.
As well as all that, you will receive sessions on all things horse and all things racing to give you the best exposure as possible to the industry.
The course aims to educate you not only on the day to day life of stable staff but also the different avenues which are open to people wishing to work in racing; be it working in stud, working on the racecourse or one of the many other careers available in the industry.
