The Irish Injured Jockeys, in partnership with equuip, have developed a Financial Literacy Course for Jockeys. The course is bespoke to industry and will help guide jockeys on their financial matters.

The Financial Literacy course is divided into three stages with different modules. Each stage must be completed before you can progress to the next stage.

Stage One: Online Course

  • An online platform with videos talking you through best practice in managing your finances.
  • Covering the basics of finance, budgeting and financial advice.


Stage Two: Workshops with Gateway Consulting

  • An in-person workshop with Gateway Financial Consultants was held on Tuesday, November 15th at Fairyhouse Racecourse. The workshop lasted two hours and was fully funded by the IIJ and equuip. Our next workshop is for Flat jockeys, online via zoom on the 13th December at 3pm. (Scroll down to register)
  • The workshop will cater for those starting in their careers by helping to guide them through tax, VAT, the breakdown of prize money and a riding fee. 
  • The workshop will also benefit those that have further progressed in their career paths and are thinking about the next step including pensions and investments.

Stage Three: One-to-one mentoring

  • Access to one of Irelands leading consultancy firms, Gateway Consultants, for one-to-one mentoring. Receive personal advice on your financial situation and how best to manage your finances going forward. The one-to-one mentoring sessions are also funded by the IIJ and equuip.
