Unusually we’re focusing this weeks on 1 graduate…
.
Congratulations to Lance Corporal 𝗛𝗼𝗹𝗹𝘆 𝗛𝗮𝗹𝗹 who today won the Services Championships at Olympia, The London International Horse Show! .
Holly graduated from the BRS and had a career as an Apprentice Jockey. She may have hung up her Jockey boots and joined the Army but she still rides out daily for Rebel Racing Ltd in Newmarket.
.
What an achievement

Brilliant day out today for course 336, 336Y and the Introduction to Racing course to @fakenhamracecourse.
We were lucky to have the 2nd race named after us and the students were given the privilege of choosing the Best Turned Out horse and also presenting the prize to the winning trainer.
Thank you @fakenhamracecourse
