Gotta love Facebook! A colleague liked a page that came up on my feed and I thought I’d take a look because of it’s name! This one’s the Queensland Racing and Equine Academy.
If you’re in the vicinity and are interested in pursuing a career in the horse racing industry, it may be worth a look! From their website, there are traineeships on offer in the areas of:
- Stable hand
- Track work rider/driver
- Stable foreman
- Horse trainer
On top of this, they also offer courses as a steward or race day official. Whether it’s the gallops or harness racing, if you’re keen to gain a qualification in this area, take a further look! If you’re unsure where you want to go exactly, taking a look at their career pathways page may help.
