North West Region PRA Advanced Training Day
For children with 2 of more years pony racing experience.
It costs £30 per jockey/pony combination and includes ridden and non-ridden sessions.
We will run under current Government Guidelines for the prevention of Covid-19. As it stands, jockeys may be accompanied by only one parent/guardian. These adults will be asked to remain with their vehicle for the duration of the Training Day. Please be sure to bring all tack and refreshments with you. Full details and a tack list will be sent to you in advance and equipment may not be shared.
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. Participants will also be required to sign a waiver for Covid-19 and provide their contact details for Track and Trace. Ponies (and jockeys) that do not comply will not be allowed to take part on the day.
Entries close 1 week 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.
This is a second stage training day for those who have 2 or more years pony racing experience. These days focus on the riders’ race riding techniques, fitness and body conditioning as well as diet. Successful completion of the above training day qualifies the rider/pony combination to take part in a Racecourse Series Pony Race (if the rider has completed three Point to Point Races) or a Point-to-Point pony race.
These are run by the PRA and delivered by a Jockey Coach. The groups are much smaller and therefore the focus is on the individual. We also use video analysis of the rider’s races in order to help them with their technique.
The day will be run under current Government Covid-19 guidelines which are subject to last minute change. These will be communicated to participants via email. Please see Entry Details for further information and contact details.
