Our mission statement is to protect, promote and represent the interests of professional jockeys both on and off the racecourse working with regulatory, industry and commercial bodies to secure agreements to the benefit of all and continually working in the best interests of British horseracing.


The welfare of jockeys is paramount and our job is to ensure that the correct procedures are in place and that jockeys are adequately supported and well equipped to deal with the rigours of racing.


Jockeys are key to the success of British racing and through their role as racing’s ambassadors, the PJA ensures that jockeys get their fair share of media rights and other collective commercial arrangements.


Your views are represented and policies are formed by the elected PJA Board.  We strive continuously to make sure jockeys’ voices are heard and provide strong and respected leadership.
