Riding A Dream Academy

Programme Highlight

At the Riding A Dream Academy we’re passionate about supporting talented young riders from underrepresented communities get involved in British horseracing. Inspired by the incredible achievements of Khadijah Mellah, who became the first British Muslim woman to ride in and win a British horse race, we want to help other young riders aged 14-18 achieve their dreams. Funded by the Racing Foundation, the Academy runs two programmes – The Khadijah Mellah Scholarship which is a year-long programme for talented riders, and the Riding A Dream Residential Week which is a fun introduction to the sport.
