Behind the Scenes Horse Racing Experience with Oliver Sherwood Racing for One
Spend a morning with top racehorse trainer Oliver Sherwood at his Lambourn stables in the heart of Berkshire's Valley of the Racehorse. It'll be an early start, but the experience begins with a hearty English breakfast with Oliver himself, which is well worth getting up for. Head up to the gallops to watch Oliver's horses being put through their paces during their morning training session, before learning about what goes into training a winner and tips on spotting one. Enjoy a tour of the yard to meet all the horses currently in training, as well as key members of Oliver's team. It's the perfect present for any racing enthusiast!
