Open Mornings 2021

Please note our Open Morning on Friday 27 August is cancelled, we apologise for any inconvenience.

Open Mornings at the National Horseracing College (NHC) are designed for parents, guardians, potential learners, and career advisors to find out more about the National Horseracing College and the wide range of courses we offer.

Our Open Mornings start at 10.15am and finish at approximately 12.15pm. We ask for all visitors to register by 10am at the Visitor Centre which is located on the left down the lane to the National Horseracing College main site. During the event, visitors will learn more about the 12-week residential Foundation Course, meet the horses and the instructor team, watch learners riding on the gallops (weather permitting), watch a demonstration on the racing simulators and hear from current learners about their experience at the NHC.

We advise that visitors wear suitable footwear and clothing as the majority of the tour will take place outdoor and the British weather can be very unpredictable. We ask for visitors not to bring dogs.

Please be aware that the format of the day may vary depending on government advice. During Covid lockdown, we produced a large variety of Virtual Open Mornings. To view these video recordings, head over to our Facebook page. You can also view previous videos on our YouTube Channel.
