Thank you for entering the Training day at
Weston & Banwell Harriers ( Wessex Area O P E N Finals)
You will need to be at the venue by . Parents are expected to stay. You will need to bring the pony’s passport with you. Please also bring a picnic lunch and other snacks that you and your child/ren need on the day.
Please email clarissa@ponyracingauthority if you need a tack and equipment list. You are not expected to have race saddles or any specialist racing kit for either your child or pony. However we do ask that all saddles (either GP or racing) have a surcingle/overgirth, every pony has a neckstrap if not being ridden in a martingale and your reins are either stitched or buckled (no billets please).
The Training Day is an assessment day where children and their ponies will be independently assessed as to their competency as a combination. The Senior Assessor will make a decision as to their level of competency and we will write to you following the day, informing you whether the combination passed the assessment. If, for whatever reason, the combination were not deemed to meet the level of competency required on this occasion, it will be necessary for them to be re assessed at a later stage in order for them to be eligible to enter to take part in any PRA pony races.
