All our International Courses are tailor made to maximise learning and educational opportunities for visiting students. International student courses range in duration from a week to months at a time. The small geographic size of our island and the willingness of the Irish racing and breeding community to welcome our International students behind the scenes enables us to provide amazing experiences as well as world-class training.

• Practical racehorse exercise riding and stable management training with RACE Instructors
• Racehorse Simulator Training - including the use of Dartfish technology
