Riding a Dream at Newmarket - Watch the Film

Year 10 students had a fantastic time during the February half term successfully completing a residential week at the Riding a Dream Academy, which supports talented young riders from diverse communities get involved in British horseracing.

I had an amazing time at my residential week at the British Racing School. I met loads of new people from different schools.

The first day was quite nerve-wracking as I was the only person from Harris Academy Peckham. I got introduced to all the people and they were very nice. We got to go on a tour around the whole school. I was surprised to see how many things race horses needed, not only keep fit but also to stay healthy.

We had to wake up at 6:30am as there was plenty to do. I kicked out the stables. I also learned how to tack a horse up. There are so many different things a horse needs. It was hard work but we did it in pairs so it was more efficient.

I wasn't as experienced as some other people but I learned a lot from them. It was exciting because when they were riding I was learning new techniques to become a better rider. The instructors there were so helpful. I was able to ride a horse in a string.

As the week progressed I felt more confident especially knowing there were people to support me. I was able to do my first canter even though I haven't done horse riding before. It was exciting as I felt the breeze and wind across my face.

The last day was the most exciting part. I was able to canter in position. It was hard at first but the instructors helping just told me to keep going which I did! I am so grateful for everything; my teachers for helping me secure this opportunity and to the British Racing School for the fantastic learning experience. I can't wait to go back in August to start my 10 week scholarship.

Kai, Year 10 Student
