Think riding horses around a track is all fun and games? Think again. Jockeys sheds light on the extreme competitiveness of racing and the inner confidence it takes to mount an unfamiliar thoroughbred moments before the starting bell rings. It also gives viewers some sense of the emotional strain suffered by the jockeys' families as they watch their loved ones put their lives on the line for the job they lovel; it's easy to sense their worry at the start of each race.

The show is entertaining enough, and there's plenty of reality-style drama for viewers to lose themselves in, but it's not intended for young horse fans. Tempers sometimes fly in stressful moments, and what begins as friendly banter between competitors can quickly become heated exchanges peppered with strong language and physical outbursts. Plus, the show replays frightening scenes of racing accidents that send horses and jockeys reeling to the ground, so there's more to worry kids here than to entertain them.
