Jockey Jack Goodchild sporting PC Racewear.
The British Racing School in Newmarket in the UK was established over 30 years ago and is now recognised as a centre of excellence for training horse riders to be tomorrow's racings greats! Jack was telling us that over 1,000 people applied for places at the school and he is thrilled to have been offered a place.
Originally from Rhydyfelin in Wales, 16 year old Jack has ridden horses since the age of 6. He had his own horse for a few years, and continued riding with the local club - Rheidol Riding Centre where he competed in events such as show jumping and dressage. Once the opportunity arose to apply to The British Racing School, Jack did so straight away and got an opportunity to try out in December 2014 when he went for interview as well as a series of fitness tests.
"I love horse racing and always have! My ambition's are to become a professional race horse jockey and trainer and compete in big races."
Unusually for a horse racing jockey, Jack is 6ft tall and weights in at 10 stone.
"I'm very slim and tall and many people have asked me am I too tall to train as a jockey? but they are wrong, it's not about the height, it's all about the weight!"
Horse racing legend, Frankie Dettori is an inspiration:
"He is a committed sportsman, who had to struggle to keep his weight in check for racing, but did it because horse racing was his dream and it meant everything to him - and its means everything to me too!"
PC Racewear are passionate about supporting young horse riders hoping to make a career in the competitive world of horse racing, and we wish Jack the very best of luck in the future!
Two years of development and testing by some of the toughest guys in the business has gone into producing our outstanding all-round horse riding jacket that is the PC Jacket:
- Water resistant
- Has a breathable outer shell
- Lightweight fleece lined inner
- Embossed popper buttons
- Embroidered ‘PC' logo
- Outer pockets and an inner mobile phone pocket
- Contrasting coloured storm flap with velcro clasp
The PC Jacket also features an innovative curved rear hem, making it a perfect fit with or without a body protector. The PC Jacket is an all weather jacket that looks just as good out of the saddle as in it!
The same quality and attention to detail is evident in our entire range of horse-riding apparel, and all of our clothing are available in multiple sizes to cater for children and adults of all sexes and sizes! You don't need to believe what we are telling you about our clothing, simply read what one of our satisfied customer's has to say:
"I have been using the PC Racewear Jacket since its inception, and I still have the first one I bought in full working order. The revolutionary back of the jacket, now seen copied on its competitors is fantastic to keep the chill out when doing canter work. I bought a pair of waterproof breeches at Christmas and haven't looked back. They are also a great present - ask most of my friends who have received some item or other over the years." - George Geraghty
