Many of my friends have taken it, and are currently taking it. Have nothing but good things to say, it prepares you well for galloping on the actual track at Northlands (or where ever you may go). There are already a few successful jockeys from the program, the biggest name being Omar Moreno. Scott Williams just became a jockey this year and is doing very well for himself as well.
It's a jockey/gallop person school - cause obviously everyone starts off galloping and it's good to know how to do it properly, and how to deal with certain situations before getting onto the crowded 'A' track.
