“Despite what many people might think, we’re not all about betting and races; there’s a lot more to us than just the horse racing part!” says general manager Kjetil Olsen. “Since horse racing actually only takes up 30 days a year, we have other activities going on throughout the year to keep us going.” Back in 2012 they initiated Travskolen, a trotting school allowing children aged four to 18 to participate on a weekly basis and learn all about trotting as well as how to take care of the horses. “It’s like any other leisure activity,” says Olsen. “They come here every week and develop their skills and knowledge over the seasons.”
