Scottish Racing Academy

The Scottish Racing Academy is committed to addressing the gap in horse racing education and training provision available in Scotland and the north. It has been estimated that there are more than 50 different career paths in the horse racing industry. So we want to help attract individuals from all walks of life to fulfil those roles.

Horse racing is the second most popular spectator sport in Scotland – and unlike many other countries, it operates as a year round sport. The five Scottish racecourses are Ayr, Kelso, Musselburgh, Perth and Hamilton Park which offer both flat and jump events.

The Scottish Racing Academy has partnered with leading educational centres to help people learn the skills and knowledge to pursue a career in horse racing.
