10 - 18 September 2022

National Racehorse Week is a nationwide annual celebration of the racehorse and a chance to see first-hand the love, care, and attention that goes into looking after them.

 

Born out of an idea in 2019 by trainer Richard Phillips to create a single event that could be hosted by the racing industry, National Racehorse Week is celebration of the animals who power racing and provide entertainment for millions, whilst also providing the public and policymakers with insight into the dedicated care that they receive.

 

In an experience like no other, racing training yards up and down the country will be opening their doors from 10 - 18 September to show the general public the fantastic lives that these magnificent animals lead.

 

Register your interest at nationalracehorseweek.uk for your chance to meet the trainers, the team, and, most importantly, the horses.
