Horse Ranger Caitlin’s – BRS Week Residential Placement
British Racing School ran an Equine charity week where 4 of us from Horse Rangers applied to attend and were very lucky to be accepted on this very special residential placement week. I was one of those rangers.
After a 2 hour drive, upon arrival we were taken on a tour of the grounds and saw our accommodation, common room and eating area. It was all lovely. We shared in rooms of 2 with ensuite! Another organistion, Ebony Horse Club from Brixton were also there with 6 of their members. After looking at the yard and race horses we were taken to a room where simulators were. We each got on and were taught how to sit on a race horse and the position in which you ride in. After understanding the position in which you ride, they put the simulator on which moved the horse the way the race horse runs. We practiced how to speed up the horse, slow them down and change your hand positions while riding. This was an amazing experience and enabled us to understand the technicality of riding a race horse and was a really good way to understand what it feels like to be on the running horse.
