Riding Video Guidelines

 To be considered for an interview with Godolphin Flying Start you must be able to complete the following:


Achieve the minimum riding standard on a quiet horse in an enclosed area

  • Tack up with bridle and saddle safely and efficiently
  • Maintain a correct, balanced and secure position in the saddle
  • Walk, trot and canter demonstrating smooth transitions
  • Control your horse in straight lines and circles




Provide clear recent video footage* of yourself exceeding the minimum riding standard:

  • Race or exercise riding a thoroughbred
  • Show-jumping
  • Eventing

*You must be identifiable in the footage provided for example your face should be recognisable or if you submit race footage you can include a screenshot of the race card with your name and horse ridden.
