Today we’d like to introduce to you our #TakeTheReins17 partner Richard Fahey and Musley Bank Yard. Musley Bank will feature in the project by hosting the Give & Gain Day on Friday 21st April as well as by providing placement for our work experience project participants.

On Give & Gain Day, Richard Fahey will be joined by his apprentice jockey and #TakeTheReins ambassador, Adam McNamara and together they will provide participants with a tour around the superb facilities of Musley Bank Yard. These include Gallops, Indoor Schools, Horse Walkers, Treadmills and a Spa.

Richard and Adam will also share with the participants their stories and experiences of working within the horse racing industry and their journeys to become successful within their field. This will be an opportunity for the young people to see examples of jobs that are involved on the yard and ask questions about them.

In 2015 they equalled the record of 235 winners in a calendar year. Richard’s plan was to make Musley Bank one of the best training facilities in the country and in the past few years this has been realised. Last season they sent out 198 winners, won over £3m in prize money and had Group 1, 2 and 3 successes.

It is clear to see that all the team at Musley Bank Yard are passionate about the work they undertake and that most importantly the horses are well cared for and at the heart of everything they do. Keep an eye on our social media channels on Friday 21st of April to see Musley Bank Yard for yourself as we #TakeTheReins to the stables for the Give and Gain Day event.
