If it's specifically to do with Jockeys then in the UK the best place to go to first is The Professional Jockey Association at http://www.thepja.co.uk/

I would then have a look at the British Horse Racing Authority at http://www.britishhorseracing.com/

Also, quite a lot of jockey's have very good Twitter accounts and I'm sure some of them would be more than happy to answer a couple of tweets about the weight difficulties they may have if it helps your speech.


There's also a very good article from a couple of years ago with AP McCoy and in part of it he talks about how difficult it is to maintain the weight and the diet he has to go on and it's well worth a read... http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/uk-news/ton...

Hope all that helps a bit!
