Corrective Services NSW

Selected minimum-security inmates are given the opportunity to learn horse-related vocational skills to help them secure employment after being released from custody. Under the supervision of corrective service officers and Team Thoroughbred NSW staff, inmates learn how to retrain Thoroughbreds for their next pursuit after racing, graduating with nationally recognised qualifications. This program currently operates at St Heliers Correctional Centre in Muswellbrook.
