Healthy Mind

Personal Growth

Considering the time and energy demands that it takes to be a professional jockey, sometimes horse racing can feel like being in a bubble, and it can be difficult to maintain a healthy work/life balance.

Having a healthy life outside of racing is essential for maintaining well-being, as well as increasing the likelihood of a sustained and successful career as a professional jockey.

With our Jockey Support Network Partner, JETS, we provide extensive lifestyle support including identifying areas for personal growth through further education and training, advice for time and energy management, as well as helping jockeys develop outside of the singular ‘jockey identity’.

Jockeys can contact JETS on:
