Di Arbuthnot, RoR Chief Executive said: “This is a fantastic opportunity to come along and meet a host of experts and industry professionals all under one roof. We hope too that with tickets available to buy in advance for just £15, this is an affordable day out packed with inspiration and ideas for both those current and any potential new owners of former racehorses.”
The day features 11 demonstrations in the main indoor arena, more up-close clinics in the second indoor arena and a RoR ‘Ask the Experts’ Education Zone where the day’s experts and trainers will be available to ask questions.
