HPA have worked alongside the renowned British Thoroughbred Retraining Centre to help create a world-leading centre of excellence for the care of thoroughbreds.
This project helped revitalise the existing centre, founded in 1991 and based at Whinney Hill near Lancaster, and created high-quality additions by proposing the refurbishment and remodelling of the existing farm outbuildings to create vibrant classroom facilities. Quality accommodation was provided for up to 12 students, plus teachers, and an inspiring conference hall for lectures and other activities was also added.
BRTC is the UK’s leading thoroughbred retraining and rehabilitation centre and already works alongside UK schools, colleges, and universities to offer students the chance to gain valuable work experience with thoroughbred horses.
The proposed ‘Sir Peter O’Sullevan Thoroughbred Education Centre’ will be the first of its kind in Britain. This purpose-built facility focuses on providing education in the special requirements of thoroughbreds, offering a level of access to these animals that simply isn’t available anywhere else in the country.
