Apprentice Academy SA has been educating young apprentice jockeys since the early 1980's. Apprentices are taught a range of techniques and skills at the Academy that help them on their paths to becoming competent and experienced senior riders. The program has recently introduced a new training partnership with The University of South Australia.
Size, skill and fitness are all significant factors in becoming a jockey, as is a love of horses and a desire to win! Motivation and enthusiasm is essential. Click here to find out more about the Certificate IV in Racing (Jockey).
