Did you get some coaching on our simulators?

On the hottest day of the year (so far) our horses, staff and students have had an afternoon of water play

There’s still time to book onto our OPEN DAY next week.
We’ll be exploring our facilities and courses on offer as well as going for a behind the scenes tour of trainer David Lanigan’s yard.

Heath ride… During the last week of the residential course our students get the opportunity to ride on the Famous Newmarket Heath. It’s something many people in Newmarket take for granted, but it is an honour and a privilege.

This is course 331 out on the Heath this morning

It’s WellDoneWednesday time!

Well done to ๐— ๐—ผ๐—ฟ๐—ด๐—ฎ๐—ป ๐—–๐—ผ๐—น๐—ฒ (course 307) who rode her first winner last week at Kempton.

Well done to the Year 10 students on the Flexible Learning Programme who all completed year 1 of the course yesterday (pictured)

We’d also like to take this opportunity to wish Julie Howells the best of luck as she embarks on a new journey. Julie started at the BRS in 2015 just teaching HOP and yesterday was her final day as assistant to the FLP Programme. Thank you Julie!

Let us know if you’ve completed a qualification, led up a winner, had a promotion – we’d love to know and celebrate your successes

There’s a lot to learn…
Did you know that throughout our residential course the trainees wear an ear piece so they can receive instruction whilst riding. Not only is this a great way to learn and react to what’s happening with the horse you’re on, it also improves the safety for both horse and rider.
As well as this, on the straight gallop, our instructors drive alongside the gallop delivering instructions and then pass on additional feedback when they’re walking home (pictured). Riding a racehorse at speed is a skill that takes training and practice

We’re delighted to announce that today we were awarded the โ€œexcellence in Safeguarding awardโ€ at the SAFEcic conference
