Follow three aspiring young riders from Ebony Horse Club on their visit to Ascot Racecourse
On behalf of Great British Racing, EP has created a two-part series featuring young riders at Ebony Horse Club. This special piece follows three of their aspiring riders, Oshane, Grace and Abdus, who are given a behind the scenes introduction to all racing has to offer.
Part one follows the teenage trio to Ascot Racecourse where they meet the likes of Jockey Host Nick Bentley, Trainer Warren Greatrex, Jockey Gavin Sheehan, and ITV Racing Presenter Rishi Persad.
Part two takes them behind the scenes at Warren Greatrex’s racing yard to see all the hard work it takes to get a racehorse to the track. They also received a free equicizer coaching session by Nick Bentley at the end of their tour.
The Ebony Horse Club offers young people growing up in South London’s most disadvantaged communities an opportunity to build confidence and learn life skills through riding and caring for horses.
