Did you know that it’s possible to study for an Apprenticeship in the Horseracing industry? Being able to ride isn’t necessary but loving horses or animals and the great outdoors will help.


Racing and Thoroughbred breeding offers a range of exciting and challenging roles and training opportunities. Your students could be involved with breeding or racing some of the best horses in the country or even the world, or pursue a career in another part of this diverse industry.  From sales people to photographers to racing secretaries and catering staff, there is something for everyone.
