From Foal to Race Transition Year Programme (Equine)

Agri Aware and Equuip have come to together to create 'From Foal to Race'. A programme designed to bring both student and teacher on a learning experience, meaning no prior knowledge of the industry is required.



Agri Aware and equuip are proud to present Transition Year students with a comprehensive overview of the horse racing industry with a strong focus on increasing awareness of the careers that feature throughout the foal to race story. Some of the featured career case studies include jockeys, digital marketing and nominations.

Throughout this 12 week (1 hour per week) programme, both teachers and students will gain insight into the horse racing industry "From Foal to Race", including the role of stud farms, animal welfare and other regulations of the industry.

This programme is not just relevant for those living within horseracing communities but also opens conversations for those who do not. There are no prior industry or equine knowledge expectations.

The programme features topics relevant to the Leaving Certificate cycle in the areas of biology, business, agricultural science and design and communication. This interdisciplinary approach reflects real-world application of school taught subjects in a flexible and interesting format.

An interactive PDF will be available to download from this page from January 2023.

From Foal To Race will officially run from January - May 2023. If you would like to use the programme outside of this time frame, please get in touch with us at
