South East Area PRA/PC Training Day
CHANGE OF DATE – THIS DAY WAS ORIGINALLY SCHEDULED TO RUN ON SATURDAY 15th APRIL. IT WILL NOW BE ON SUNDAY 16th APRIL.
Please note – this day will only go ahead if a minimum of 8 children are booked on to attend. We aim to start the day at 1pm and finish by 4/4.30pm. Times are TBC.
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.
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 our Training Days page. Ponies will need an overgirth and neck strap. They MUST also be microchipped AND be fully vaccinated against Equine Influenza.
Annual Equine Influenza vaccinations are acceptable for this day but please note that to race in PRA races, ponies will have to be vaccinated in line with the new British Horseracing Authority Regulations which you can view here:
No pony may have a booster vaccination less than 7 days before a PRA Activity 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.
Entries for this Training Day will close a 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.
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.
These days are designed for children with their own pony or access to a pony that they can race which they will bring to the day.
Jockeys without a pony, please see our Youth Training Scheme information.
