Could you be a Jockey?

13-12-2017

A question that many racing fans will have asked themselves over time. Do you think you have what it takes? Check out these key attributes that are required in order to have success in the saddle. You can now bet on horse racing with Paddy Power ahead of the key jump racing fixtures in this national hunt season.

VERSATILITY

Versatility is a key attribute that surrounds both horse and jockey. Can they perform on all surfaces such as turf and dirt and sprints and long distance races. Ryan Moore is the key example of this and this is why he is regarded by many as the top flat jockey in the world currently. Moore travels around the world to ride horses and has continued to have major success where ever he goes. Such as the Melbourne cup in Australia, the Breeders Cup in America and key races on the Japanese circuit.

TOUGHNESS

This is one of the toughest sports to be a part off with a vast number of injuries due to the risk involved. This is shown again with top jockey Ruby Walsh now side-lined due to another broken leg. This being said it is the best jockeys that are able to bounce back from these injuries and come back better than ever. Injury is unfortunately part and parcel of horse racing and is bound to occur.

INTELLIGENCE

The best jockeys around such as Ryan Moore on the flat and Ruby Walsh over jumps have a high intelligence for the game. They need to study each race and how best to ride that certain horse to its strengths. The greatest jockeys will know when to kick on or wait on horses when riding in the top racetracks around the world. It is about being the best judge of a horse in order to play to its strengths to give it the best chance of winning.

FITNESS

Fitness is one of the most important attributes in order to be successful as not only a jockey but an athlete. Jockeys need to stay physically fit whilst maintaining such low weights. The average weight for a jockey is around 9/10 stone. The need to be fit is shown in how much effort and work they have to put into a ride which is shown emphatically in the Grand national for example as it is a severe test for both the horse and jockey aboard.

CONFIDENCE AND AGGRESSIVENESS

These two attributes come together to form one. It is so important for a jockey to have the confidence in himself and on a horse in order to achieve great things. A prime example was from the recent era of the best jump jockey to ever do it in AP McCoy. He is renowned for his aggressive racing style but he continued to get the best out of horses which no other jockeys were able to do. Everything that was AP McCoy was shown in his final Cheltenham Festival win aboard Uxizandre has he led from pillar to post in an incredible performance from both jockey and horse. This surprising all with a 16/1 victory and defeating now Gold Cup winner Don Cossack in the process.
