You will require this licence if you intend to ride a thoroughbred horse in a race in NSW.
There are three variations of licence available:
- Jockey: ride horses in races;
- Apprentice jockey: learn to become a jockey with a licensed trainer; or
- Approved rider: ride horses in races at a registered picnic meeting (amateur races).
If you hold a licence to ride issued by an overseas racing authority you may be permitted to ride in NSW subject to conditions.
Please consult the Contact Officer for more information.
