All ponies MUST 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. Nb – if a vaccination is given on Monday, the pony will not be able to participate in PRA events until the following Monday).

This day is held wholly outside and is only suitable for children who have pony raced before.
Jockey’s will take part in a number of different sessions in the morning, to include both riding and non-riding exercises, teaching them about balance and fitness required for pony racing. These groups will be based on previous experience and pony size.
If all goes well and they are happy to do so, they will ride on the gallops in the afternoon. 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 2020.
