The British Horseracing Authority (BHA) has introduced a suite of eight higher-level training programmes in the horseracing and Thoroughbred breeding industries. These programmes build on the skills and knowledge either gained from lower-level qualifications or by working in the industry and are specific to particular vocational areas of work.

The subjects included in this suite of learning programmes are:

  1. Operating within British Horseracing Regulations
  2. Management of the Education, Training and Development of Young Thoroughbred Horses
  3. Development and Implementation of a Horse Care, Welfare and Stable Management Policy for Thoroughbred Horses
  4. Management of the Purchase and Sale of Thoroughbred Horses
  5. Managing Staff Recruitment, Training and Retention in Horseracing
  6. Training Thoroughbred Horses for Performance
  7. Management of a Thoroughbred Stallion (Not available at NHC)
  8. Management of Thoroughbred Breeding Operations (Not available at NHC)

How much will it cost?

The normal cost of each Learning Programme will be £1,500. However, currently, a subsidy will be applied so the candidate only pays a registration fee of £100.
