About The National Jockeys Trust
The National Jockeys Trust is a charity for injured & ill jockeys. We provide compassion, empathy & financial support for injured & ill jockeys & their families in necessitous circumstances.
Whether you were blissfully unaware, more than 200 jockeys get injured yearly on racetracks in Australia. It is reported that:
- 89% of jockeys experience a fall that requires medical attention.
- Additionally, experts predict that there will be 10 to 12 jockey fatalities.
- 50 jockeys will sustain injuries that will end their careers, including paraplegia, quadriplegia, and severe brain injuries, in the next decade.
When you look at these statistics, they further highlight the inherent danger that our jockeys face every time they are legged up onto a horse.
