What’s involved?

Our upcoming Exercise Rider Course is a 12-week intensive course for 18 to 25 year olds who want to work as a groom for a racehorse trainer. 

This course is funded by CARE (www.workinginracing.ie) and delivered by RACE for young people who wish to develop their riding skills and stable yard skills to pursue a career as a groom in a racing yard.

Participant will have to fund their own living expenses for the duration of the course, but all course fees are funded.

Students will spend 12-weeks working Monday to Saturday lunchtime on campus in the role of an exercise rider under the expert training and supervision of our team of experienced instructors.

During the course students will be assisted to find full-time employment in a racehorse trainers yard, to commence on completion of training.   Students are required to continue working in the Irish horse racing industry for a period of 12 months following completion of training.
