Mandatory Rider Assessment for First Season Riders (and those who’ve not ridden since December 1st 2013)
The season is fast approaching and if you are a First Season Rider, or are returning after a break and have not race ridden since December 1st 2013, you will be required to complete a Rider Assessment in order to obtain your RQC unless one of the following exemptions applies:
- You hold a Category A (Dual or Jump) or Category B Permit
- You have successfully completed a Point-to-Point training day at the British Racing School or the Northern Racing College. Training days are currently scheduled at The British Racing School in Newmarket on 15th November and 13th December 2018 (click here for details) and at The Northern Racing College on 25th October 2018 (click here for details)
