Purpose:

We’re on the look-out for 8 promising and talented riders aged 14 -18 to become the first group to join the Khadijah Mellah Scholarship in 2021. If you’re from a non-traditional racing or non-horsey background, don’t have a pony and ride at an urban equestrian centre, we want to hear from you! ​ The Scholarship runs for a year, starting with a Residential Week at the British Racing School (BRS) in Newmarket from Monday 23rd August - Friday 27th August 2021. Thereafter, there will be 11 monthly weekend sessions at the BRS and at the end of it you will come out with a Level 1 in the Structure and Organisation of the Horseracing Industry.
