PERMIT HOLDERS

A Permit Holder is someone who is licenced by the British Horseracing Authority to train racehorses for themselves & their immediate family. They are not allowed to train for ‘outside’ owners. Out of the current 570 licences currently held in England, Scotland & Wales, 65 are in the hands of Permit Holders. The remaining 505 are made up of Combined 420 (approximately) with the balance split roughly 50/50 between Flat only & Jumping only licences. Permit Holders are only allowed to train over jumps & NOT on the flat. Why is this? It is a lot easier to train a horse for flat racing rather than jumping for many reasons & therefore why is someone excluded from having a few of their own horses competing on the level? There has been a lot of talk in recent months about a lack of runners in many races & therefore surely anything to help stop the slide should be welcomed & given serious consideration!
