To celebrate International Women’s Day our Junior Schools’ had a special visit from apprentice jockey Tayla Childs. Tayla spoke to the students about being a female jockey, horse health and shared some fun and interesting facts, such as horses teeth never stop growing and jockeys need to have the fitness level of an Olympic rower!!
Tayla and the team were joined by Gunner, a retired racehorse, who was doing his very first school visit! Everyone got a chance to pat Gunner and ask Tayla questions.
Thanks to Tayla, Gunner and past Junior School staff members, Jo Rogan and Mel Weatherley, for an informative and interactive presentation.
