Held by kind permission of Mr and Mrs D Brace. With thanks to Llangeinor Hunt PC and Rachel Pugh for organising.
We will be running an Advanced group for jockeys who have 2 or more years pony racing experience.
Venue – Dunraven Stud, Llanmihangel Farm, Pyle, Bridgend, South Wales CF33 4RL. Please see the website for directions. The best postcode to use if you are using a Sat Nav device is CF33 6AT.
A day of tuition for pony racing which can qualify the combination of pony and rider for Point-to-Point Pony Races and Pony Club Pony Race Days in 2020.
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 so if you vaccinate on Monday it will be the following Monday before you can take part in a PRA event).
Passports will be checked on arrival at the venue and please be sure to enter your pony using the registered name on their passport.
Ponies that do not comply will not be allowed to take part on the day.
The cost of the day is £30 per pony/jockey combination. We start at 10am and hope to finish by 4pm.
Entries close 1 week before the day or when full. Spaces are limited and early booking is advised.
Please bring a picnic for you, jockey (and pony!).
The children 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.
