Few spectator sports are quite as thrilling as horseracing. Catch a glimpse behind the scenes of the sport, with a morning with top racehorse trainer Charlie Mann at his Lambourn Stables, in the heart of Berkshire’s ‘Valley Of The Racehorse’. It’ll be an early start but the experience includes a hearty farmhouse breakfast with Charlie, which is well worth getting up for. Head out to the gallops to watch the horses being put through their morning training session. Learn about the training and groundwork it takes to turn a horse into a champion and get some tips on spotting a winner. Charlie and his trainers have trained over 800 winners and can answer all your questions. Horse racing aficionados are guaranteed a morning of enjoyment and insight.


Every Wednesday and Saturday, from January to May and September to December.


Bad weather won’t affect the day – the horses need training whatever the weather!
