COURSE DETAILS

NRC offers a range of courses at all levels for people who are looking at horseracing as a future career and for those who are currently working in the industry wishing to develop their qualifications and skills. The College works with the British Horseracing Authority, delivering Jockey License courses and Racehorse Trainer modules; successful completion of which are a mandatory element of securing their respective race-riding and training licenses.

Additionally NRC focuses on providing learning opportunities for young people wishing to gain experience with racehorses and riding. Pony Racing training and the 14-16 Work Related Programme are very popular and we are now seeing young people progressing from these courses to careers in racing and achieving race riding success.

NRC also hosts Doncaster Equine College for people who are interested in working with horses other than in the racing industry. This can also lead to students applying for the foundation course if they decide to pursue a career within the racing industry. Courses are available in Levels 1, 2 and 3 Horse Care.
