About Galloping To Give
At Galloping To Give, we are all about encouraging and educating individuals and groups to understand more about this sensational sport. The thing we feel many don't realise about horse racing is it's accessibility. The sport is much more open and friendly than many people realise - gone are the days when it was only for the elite classes. The fact that Great British Racing are referring to the sport as ''Everyone's Turf' rather than ''The sport of Kings'' demonstrates the progress that has been made.
Racing is a busy sport with no two days the same and it taps into the mind like nothing else. Through our expertise and tours with top trainers, sales and bloodstock agents as well as leading racecourses, let us organise a magical day for your and whoever you choose to bring.

“Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life,” Confucius.
A lifelong racing fan, Henry Kimbell is delighted to now have the opportunity to combine his passion with a profession.
“I have always been fascinated by the sport. It intrigues me as it so unique and incomparable to many others - the elements that come together to get the thoroughbred onto the course ready to do themselves justice is quite incredible.”
“Party Politics winning the 1992 Grand National - when it was around the time of the General Election. Not that I was old enough to vote back then!”
“Two if I may....
Nenuphar Collonges winning at the Cheltenham Festival in 2008. My father part owned him with a couple of good family friends. Heading into that hallowed area of the winner’s enclosure with a horse your family part owns is something beyond special!
Mild Illusion winning a Listed race at Newmarket on ITV Racing for the Old Stoic Racing Club. A Racing Club that had taken a good two years to get going and those first couple of seasons were quite tough so this was a reward that was beyond everyone's wildest dreams!”
“Newbury. A lovely fair track which has excellent racing both over jumps and on the flat. Plus, it's my local childhood course.”
I feel there is a gap in the market for someone to take the time to assist businesses, charities, and also individuals in learning more about horse racing. There is a perception it’s quite a complex sport to understand, which I would agree with as, for example, it has its own betting language! That said, Galloping To Give has the skills and expertise to bring down some of those barriers and encourage more people to learn to follow certain horses and trainers. This ultimately will bring more people to the races regularly for business activities, feeling more confident in what they are watching and talking about.
If someone is encouraged by something that happens, it gives them hope or confidence.
Enjoyment is the feeling of pleasure and satisfaction you have when you do or experience something that you like.
Learning is the process of gaining knowledge.
