Northern Region PRA/PC Training Day
To be held at:
Tim Reed Racing
Timings are TBC and will be confirmed by email nearer the time but we hope everyone can arrive from 9.30am for a 10am start and finish by 3pm.
This Training Day will provide training for pony racing and allows the combination of pony and rider to qualify for Point-to-Point Pony Races and Pony Club Pony Race Days for the remainder of 2023 and in 2024. Older Jockeys may also use the day to qualify for the PRA Racecourse Series.
It includes ridden and non-ridden sessions.
There is no catering on site. Please be sure to bring refreshments with you.
A guide to the day AND tack list is available on the Training Day page of this website. Ponies will need an overgirth and neck strap. They MUST also be microchipped AND be fully vaccinated against Equine Influenza with a booster in the last 6 months before the Training Day.
Please note that this booster must be more than 6 days before the Training Day which means that if you vaccinate on a Monday, you are not clear to attend a PRA event until the following Monday.
Passports will be checked in advance of the day.
Please be sure to enter your pony using the
registered name on their passport.
From January 2023 all ponies taking part in PRA pony racing activities will require a booster for Equine Influenza within 6 months. You can find out more about this here and we will talk you through this and anything else you need to know about pony racing on the day.
Entries for the Training Day close up to 2 weeks before the day or when full.
Spaces are strictly limited and early booking is advised.
For further information and with any questions, please email email@example.com or telephone 07887 541571.
Jockeys without ponies, please see our Youth Training Scheme information.
The children will take part in a number of different sessions including both riding and non-riding exercises, teaching them about balance and fitness required for pony racing.
If all goes well and they are happy to do so, they will ride on the gallops. If the instructors are satisfied they are safe and in control of their pony, they will be qualified to ride in PRA and Pony Club Pony Races in 2023.
These days are designed for children with their own pony or access to a pony that they can race which they will bring to the day.
Jockeys without a pony, please see our Youth Training Scheme information.
