Volunteer today for racing charities!


Charities working across the sport are frequently in need of valuable support from volunteers – on an ongoing basis or just to support a particular event.

Volunteering is a great way to help the causes you support, and can even boost your CV and help you make new friendships.

New Beginnings

Current Activities

Programme Highlight

Education of the racing public, raising awareness of the high welfare standards of racehorse both during and after racing. This is done through approx 20 race meetings where we either take two former Racehorses who stand all day and allow the racing public to come and stroke them, giving us the opportunity to talk to them. We also do ridden parades where we will take 5 or 6 of our retrained former racehorses and parade them, usually before the first race. This allows us to show the racing public the true versatility of these magnificent animals. We also go to local and county shows and give talks to local groups.
