More about us...

The British Racing School is a charity delivering world class education for young people wanting to access careers in horseracing, from our 120 acre site in Newmarket. Our mission is to make the horse racing industry accessible for all young people, regardless of their background or experience with horses. In the last four decades, we have trained over 4,000 young people; equipping them with the skills to excel in Britain's second biggest spectator sport. We are also home to the Newmarket Pony Academy, a community project which uses horses and ponies to positively affect mental health and well-being of children aged 8-14 in Newmarket and its neighbouring communities. It is also the base for the Riding A Dream Academy which works to increase diversity and inclusion in the sport. (Registered Charity No. 1161555).
