Here at Brian Barr Racing we feel horse welfare is paramount and the horses in our care want for nothing, the bond our staff have with our horses is special and the dedication and commitment given by our staff is unsurpassable so we feel by being able to welcome the public we can maybe give an idea into how fantastic the racehorse is and how they play a major part in so many peoples lives.
Come and join us for some fun to learn first hand and speak to the professionals that play all different roles within the industry as well as being able to meet the horses themselves. Demonstrations throughout the day & refreshments available.
