The Racing Excellence Hands and Heels Jumps Series is designed to assist in the education and

The special conditions set out below apply to all races in the 2021‐2022 Hands and Heels Jumps
Series, which will be held at the following meetings:


27/10/21 Taunton
01/11/21 Hereford
18/11/21 Wincanton
23/11/21 Sedgefield
10/12/21 Bangor‐On‐Dee


Further dates to follow, which can be found on the Racing Excellence website.


1.             All races will be for Conditional Jockeys and Amateur Jockeys who have not ridden more
                than 10 winners under the Rules of Racing or the rules of any Recognised Racing Authority
                prior to October 24th, 2021. In addition, Amateur Jockeys must not have reached their 26th
                birthday prior to the first race in the Series.


2.             Horses should be suitable for very inexperienced riders, and therefore privileges will not be
                allowed. Stewards will NOT grant permission to any trainer for their horse to proceed to the
                start either before the signal to mount is given or purposely last. Horses must therefore not
                proceed to the start at a walk or trot.


3              Every rider must carry a whip. Whips can be pulled through from one hand to the other as
                often as necessary. A rider must not wave their whip or hit their horse with the whip, except
                that the whip may be used down the shoulder in the backhand position, with both hands on
                the reins, when approaching an obstacle. In exceptional circumstances the rider may use the
                whip for safety reasons and encouragement in the early stages of the race.


4.             a rider uses their whip as prohibited in paragraph 3, it will be regarded as improper use of
                the whip (see Rule (F)45) and the entry point penalty is a suspension of 7 days:


                 i) In the case of Conditional Jockeys, on days when a Conditional Jockeys’ race is
                 programmed to take place in Great Britain, or


                 ii) In the case of Amateur Jockeys, on days when a race open to Amateur Jockeys (for which
                 the rider is eligible by gender) is programmed to take place in Great Britain.


                This suspension will not count towards the total number of days suspended during the
                rolling six‐month period.


5.              If a rider is suspended for using their whip in one of these races they will be stripped of
                 existing points, but will be able to continue riding in the series. In the case of a second
                 offence the entry point penalty is a suspension of 14 days, on the days stated in paragraph 4,
                 and the rider will be prevented from riding in the remainder of the series.

6.              Prior to the race the Jockey Coach will brief riders on the conditions of the race.


7.              All riders must attend a mandatory course walk with the Jockey Coach and/ or a senior
                 jockey 90 minutes before the race. If a rider is unable to attend this course walk they must
                 obtain prior dispensation (see below). If a rider is unable to attend the course walk because
                 they are riding or leading up in an earlier race they will be expected to walk the course prior
                 to this, but must inform Polly Greco in advance. Failure to attend the course walk without
                 contacting Polly Greco in advance may result in the rider losing all riding skills and
                 professionalism points for the race in question. Repeat offences may result in the rider being
                 prevented from riding in the remainder of the series.
                 For prior dispensation from the mandatory course walk riders should contact Polly Greco 01638 665103.


8.              After the race, the Rider of every horse must report to the Stewards’ room where they will
                 be talked through the race by the Jockey Coach. This is a mandatory requirement and failure
                 to attend this debrief may result in the British Horseracing Authority preventing the rider
                 from taking part in the remaining races in the series. Special permission to miss the debrief
                 may be granted by the Stewards on the day for any rider who has to leave straight after the
                 race to travel to another meeting. This must be requested before the race. The Jockey Coach
                 may also contact riders after the race meeting to further advise them on their riding.


9.              The British Horseracing Authority are generously providing a prize to the winner of the
                  series; the winner will be the rider who accumulates the most points in the series.


10.             The points table for the series can be viewed on the Jockey Training and Development
