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 2023. 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.
All ponies MUST be microchipped AND be fully vaccinated against Equine Influenza with a booster in the last 12 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.
Entries close 2 weeks before the day or when full. Spaces are strictly limited and early booking is advised.
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.
Please see Entry Details for further information and contact details.
