Striding on together - the HKJC and equestrian sport share the same spirit of partnership and commitment to excellence.
Livery of a retired racehorse is available to all members who can demonstrate adequate riding skills and basic knowledge in stable management. The Retraining Unit assesses all horses in Retraining and those identified as suitable are made available for livery. A perfect match is our number-one goal, therefore the requirements are rigid and the assessment process may take some time. BREC is constantly looking for suitable horses for the programme as these retired racehorses have so much to offer members who wish to care for a horse on a daily basis and to “ride high together” with the horse.
Once a horse is on livery, there is a support mechanism in place so that both the horse and the rider receive continuous training from instructors to develop a solid bond and establish a good foundation that will enable them to ride high together.
Horses are stabled in the main yard and members are welcome to enjoy all our facilities from 6:00am to 12:00 noon and from 2:00pm to 9:00pm, Tuesdays to Sundays. Lessons, schooling, lunging and all other requests can be arranged through our Administration Office. We provide all basic needs such as fodder, bedding, hand-walking and horse-walking assistance as well as farrier services and routine veterinary check-ups. The stable's office follows through with any additional requests.
Members who are interested in this programme can register with the Administration Office for the latest updates regarding available horses.
