First Riding A Dream Academy Student Graduates From BRS Foundation Course


Oshane | British Racing School

Oshane, a 16-year-old from South East London, became the first student from the Riding A Dream Academy to graduate from the British Racing School's Foundation course. He learned his craft at the Ebony Horse Club in Brixton, and then joined the Foundation Course last December. Oshane was also one of the first students on the Academy's Khadijah Mellah Scholarship programme. The Riding A Dream Academy is funded by the Racing Foundation.

“I loved the scholarship and really enjoyed the Foundation Course, but it was a lot of hard work,” said Oshane, who wants to become a jockey. “You get up at 6 a.m. to look after the horses and are busy all day. I went back to London for a few days before starting on my yard placement and London is boring by comparison–usually you would be busy the whole time in Newmarket so I am looking forward to getting started.”
