Jockeys normally get 10% of the winnings for a race. So, for example, if they win a normal race and the winning prize is $10,000, then they'd get $1,000 for that day. If the race is a $25,000 prize, they'd get $2,500, and so on. Now, for a big race like the Kentucky Derby where the prize for 1st place can be around $2 million, the jockey's portion would be $200,000.
with sponsors, i would say around £200,000 a year!
well the extra expenses are things like the special foods, you want to build up his energy with stuff like oats. then theres the cost of entering shows and the petrol cost of the horse lorry!
Much more than you earn!
A Hunter.-------------------------A horse that is used for Show Jumping is called either a Jumper or a Show Jumper.-------------------------------This would be an english ridden horse. "Show Jumper" is the horse. Show Jumping would be the competition it competes in.
Unmounted horse jumping is called "free jumping", where the horse is free of a rider. An unmounted jumping competition would most likely be called a "Free Jumping Show/Competition".
