Visitors to an open day had an unusual introduction to the world of work when they dropped in at the Northern Racing College (NRC).

As well as a chance to see current students at work with their four-legged friends, some were also able to try out the college’s horse simulator and get a feel for being in the saddle.

The event was one of a series of monthly taster days held at NRC to give people an insight into careers and further training in the horseracing industry plus details of the varied courses on offer at the collge on Doncaster’s Great North Road.
