Due to the recent Covid-19 restrictions and social distancing rules, we have been unable to welcome visitors to the NHC, however, we are delighted to announce that as of Friday 23rd April 2021, we are able to welcome Open morning visitor back at the National Horseracing College (subject to government guidelines). If you would prefer not to visit the NHC and would like to get involved in a Virtual Open Morning, our next virtual event will take place on Saturday 15th May 2021.

Our Open Morning’s, whether virtual or visiting the NHC, are ideal for parents, guardians, potential learners, and career advisors to find out more about the National Horseracing College and the courses we offer.

How do I get involved in a ‘Virtual Open Morning’?

Our next virtual Open Morning will take place on Saturday 15th May 2021 from 10am until 12pm via Zoom and throughout the virtual events, our team gives you a wealth of information about the 12-week residential Foundation Course and guide you around the facilities at the National Horseracing College. We will be running approximately 6 Virtual Open Mornings throughout the year, ideal for those who cannot commute to the NHC for an Open Morning.

When will I be able to visit the NHC for an Open Morning?

We anticipate that we will be able to welcome Open Morning visitors back onsite at the NHC from Friday 23rd April 2021. This will be subject to government guidelines. Strict social distancing rules must be adhered to, face masks must be worn unless you are medically exempt, and you are advised to visit in limited numbers (for example, one parent/guardian and the potential learner). We will keep everyone informed of when we can welcome visitors onsite via our website and social media platforms.
