At the meeting of the European doctors held in the fall of 2018, it was agreed that from January 1, 2019 :

  • any foreign jockey intending to ride in France must henceforth declare his minimum weight of riding
  • his Racing Authority must send us the list of his rides during the previous year, on which his riding weights must appear

This information should only be sent for the jockey’s first ride in France or if he wishes to change his minimum weight.

We draw your attention to the fact that this information is now mandatory. Otherwise, the jockey will not be allowed to ride.

We thank you in advance for your kind cooperation on this point.

Important: Riders / Trainers should contacts the IHRB as soon as they know they will be riding in France to allow IHRB sufficient time to issue the information.
