Yard Based Training Booking Form

‘This is a fantastic opportunity for all the staff in the yard to have a quick one to one tuition with the well trained jockey coaches. This is especially important for the work riders rather than jockeys as once they are settled in a yard, tuition at the racing school Is hard to fit in but this quick fix is excellent. For all the riders that were lucky enough to receive the training, the improvement in style, shape and strength was instantly recognisable and confidence within some of the newer riders very much improved.’

‘Richard Perham from the British Racing School was here this morning, helping our younger members of staff by videoing them on the gallops and showing them how they could improve their riding position and style on a horse – which they all found invaluable.’
