The Racehorse Simulators in The Sunday Times Magazine

It was a pleasant surprise to open the sunday papers this week and find a picture of journalist Krissi Murison riding one of our Racehorse Simulators at the British Racing School!

The article is about a childhood dream to become a jockey and so she visits the British Racing School for a one day training session with top jockey Richard Perham, including an assessment on the simulator! We would love to know what she thought of riding racehorse simulator!!

Well what a fantastic experience that was! Although we already have several Racehorse Simulators in China, we were yet to visit ourselves and I’m so glad that we did! We were delighted with the positive feedback that we received and as usual our trade stand was bustling!!

Not only was it great to meet lots of other UK companies hopeful to expand to China, it was really interesting to meet the Chinese equestrian clubs, schools and other equestrian organisations at the show.
