Irish Injured Jockeys was set up in 2014 to increase awareness and raise vital funds to support injured jockeys.  We are there to help with personal crises, and all cases are assessed individually and confidentially. Funds raised go to the injured riders who are in most need of support.


There are lots of ways that one can help from buying some merchandise from our online shop, making a donation, volunteering to help out at events or putting a legacy in place. Once approved by Irish Injured Jockeys you can also set up a Enhtuse Fundraising page.



Participants who join this event will not only get to immerse themselves in the world of horse racing but also contribute to a noble cause. The Corinthian Challenge Charity Race promises a thrilling and unforgettable experience as riders experience firsthand what it takes to be a jockey.
