Earlier this year we sent Julie Lingham and Suzy Berry, two of our Yard Instructors to Qatar Racing and Equestrian Club to help train and assess their grooms.
This training was so successful they asked them to come back!
The grooms are drawn from India, Bangladesh and Nepal and just work on the ground. Their keenness to learn and work ethic are impressive and many would not be out of place in UK racing yards. The training is a combination of practical skills and underpinning knowledge.
Julie Lingham said “Our second visit to Qatar went really. We covered a great deal and yet again the grooms were so enthusiastic and willing to learn.”
