British Thoroughbred Retraining Centre
HPA is working alongside the renowned British Thoroughbred Retraining Centre to help it create a world-leading centre of excellence for the care of thoroughbreds.
The proposed project will help revitalise the existing centre, founded in 1991 and based at Whinney Hill near Lancaster, to create high-quality additional facilities.
Our scheme proposes the refurbishment and remodelling of existing farm outbuildings to create vibrant classroom facilities, quality accommodation for up to 12 students, plus teachers, and an inspiring conference hall for lectures and other activities.
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 will focus solely 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.
