I would like to expand my knowledge of racing, how do I do this?
Anyone under the age of 19, under the Rules of Racing, has to study for the Level 2 Diploma in Work Based Racehorse Care and this includes those who want to pursue a career as a jockey. There are two dedicated Racing Schools offering qualifications and training courses for those who want to gain skills to work in the industry – the British Racing School in Newmarket and the National Horseracing College in Doncaster. Visit the careersinracing website for more information.
There’s plenty of content on the Careers in Racing YouTube Channel for you to enjoy and learn more about being a jockey and day to day life in the industry.
