Midlands PRA/PC Training Day
Entries are now closed but we have one space remaining. Please email email@example.com if you would like to attend.
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 in 2024. Older Jockeys may also use the day to qualify for the PRA Racecourse Series.
It includes ridden and non-ridden sessions.
Times are tbc but likely a 9.30am start, finishing at around 3pm. We will confirm by email closer to the day.
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.
Ponies MUST also be microchipped AND be fully vaccinated against Equine Influenza with a minimum of annual vaccinations before the Training Day.
Please note that any Equine Influenza booster vaccinations 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.
Please be sure to enter your
pony using the
registered name on their passport.
From January 2023 all ponies taking part in the Racecourse Series or Point-to-Point Pony Racing need to be vaccinated in line with the new BHA requirements. You can view these here: https://vaca.horseracing.software/
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 firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone 07887 541571.
Jockeys without ponies, please see our Youth Training Scheme information.
East Haddon Lodge, Northampton, NN6 6EN.
Please note that numbers are limited for the day and entries will likely close early.
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 2024.
