Thoroughbred Breeders Australia has launched its Fast Track program for 2021, ‘creating a pathway for talented horse people to enter our Thoroughbred industry.’

‘If you are passionate about horses this is an incredible opportunity,’ states the TBA, ‘as this 12-month program provides an accelerated introduction and learning experience.’

‘You’ll be employed and mentored on a respected stud farm, gain a formal qualification, plus have the opportunity to learn from leaders in the global horse industry.’

‘We believe that trainees will gain an unmatched introduction in all aspects of the thoroughbred industry, allowing them to kick-start a career that offers a world of possibilities.’

“If you enjoy an active lifestyle, working outdoors in a social and fast-paced environment, then Fast Track could be the start of an exciting new career, whatever your background.’

A limited number of applicants will be selected to take part in the 12-month program which incorporates a mix of on-the-job training and formal study.

Successful applicants will be assigned to a reputable stud farm where they will be employed via a full-time traineeship, and enrolled in a Certificate III in Horse Breeding, a national qualification.

Over the 12-month period, trainees will attend two intensive learning blocks of 6 weeks in total, with the first block commencing shortly after enrolment.

These blocks are designed to provide the theoretical knowledge needed to complement the on-farm training with the formal aspect of the program taking place in Scone NSW.

In studying such topics as preventing equine disease and injury, caring for pregnant mares and foals and raising young horses, trainees will also receive lectures and visits from industry leaders.

In being taught the understanding of pedigrees, conformation and the business of breeding, field trips will also be arranged to prestigious farms, as well as attending race meetings and social events.

The TBA is determined that this program produces a well-rounded, capable individuals who can become productive members of the industry, as well as formal learning on equine subjects.

Trainees will also be tutored to assist their personal development, plus areas of defensive driver training, first aid, healthy lifestyle, mental health and appropriate workplace behaviour.

Today the breeding and thoroughbred industry includes being a foaling attendant, yearling manager, stallion handler, vet nurse, stud logistics, bloodstock agent or nominations manager.

With breeding being such a significant rural industry, combined with its close relationship with racing, it means the opportunities to further a career are as many and varied that can be imagined.

Nearly everybody involved in the industry has done some time working hands-on with horses on a farm, even if they now have an office-based job.

Fast Track is designed to give trainees an intensive learning experience that will set them up to succeed no matter which way they want to take their career, and to spend time overseas.

The Australian breeding sector is a world-leader and our horses are recognised for their brilliance on the global stage, and our breeding industry is the biggest after America.

Thoroughbreds make a huge contribution to the regional economy, supporting thousands of jobs directly, as well as the related areas of horse transport, fencing, fodder and insurance.

Thoroughbred Breeders Australia is committed to helping the industry find the next generation of workers and dedicates significant time and resources to finding enthusiastic people to take up roles on studs across the country.
