This is the seventh year of the highly popular “Novice Riders” Race Series which will see 17 qualifying races being staged around the country culminating in a final for each height category (numbers permitting) at the 2019 Point-to-Point Pony Racing Championship Finals which is being hosted at the Exmoor Point-to-Point on Sunday, 2nd June. It’s target audience is for those children who want to have a go but don’t want the pressure of competitiveness from seasoned pony racers. Combinations who have run in a qualifying race in the 2019 season will be eligible to enter and run in the final.
A Novice Riders Championship will be run during 2019 and points will be allocated as follows:
1st: 6 2nd: 4 3rd: 2 4th: 1
The rider with the most points will be presented with their award at the annual PRA awards at the end of the year.
There will also be a prize for the first 138cms Combination past the post in the 2nd race.
