West Mercia (North) PRA/PC Training Day
Find out more about our Training Days here.
Timings are tbc but we expect to start from 9.30am and finish by 3pm. This day can be used by children to qualify to race in 2024.
Ponies attending the day must be microchipped AND be fully vaccinated against Equine Influenza with a minimum of annual vaccinations.
Please note that no vaccination for Equine Influenza should be given 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.
To race next year, ponies will need to follow the new BHA Vaccination Code which we will explain to you on the Training Day.
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 2024. Older Jockeys may also use the day to qualify for the PRA Racecourse Series.
It includes ridden and non-ridden sessions.
A guide to the day AND tack list is available on the Training Day page of this website. Ponies will need an overgirth and neck strap.
Passports will be checked on the day.
Please be sure to enter your pony using the
registered name on their passport.
Entries for the Training Day close up to 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 2024.
