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

We are delighted that we are now welcoming Open Morning visitors back onsite. Our next Open Morning (onsite) will take place on Friday 25th June. For those who would prefer to take part in a Virtual Open Morning, our next virtual event will take place on Saturday 17th July 2021.

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

Our next virtual Open Morning will take place on Saturday 17th July 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 are now welcoming Open Morning visitors back to the National Horseracing College, with an event taking place once a month. Visits to the NHC are subject to government guidelines. Strict social distancing rules must be adhered to, face masks must be worn in all indoor areas unless you are medically exempt, and you are advised to visit in limited numbers (for example, one parent/guardian and the potential learner).

Do I need to register?

Yes, registration is required for both the Virtual Open Mornings and the Open Mornings that take place at the NHC. To register please complete the below registration form by 15:30 the day before the event you wish to attend and our team will send you full details. We cannot accept online registration forms after the cut-off date and time.
