Pony Racing
Another chance to take part in the Horse racing certificate is upon us! A wonderful fun filled day for our members who are crackers for Thistlecrack!
  • Go on a behind-the-scenes tour of the racecourse, including a visit to the paddock, a walk out to the track and a sneaky peek in the weighing room
  • Meet a racehorse and learn about the breed
  • Go to Jockey School: get dressed up in some jockey’s silks and have a bitesize lesson on one of the racehorse simulators
  • Learn about the different tack used by the horses and jockeys on a race day.
If you think this is something that might interest you, get involved!!
Did you miss out on our ‘Kickstart’ day at Newmarket’s QIPCO Guineas Festival last year?
Have you not yet had the chance to get involved because you live in the North-West of England?
Did you have such a great time last year that you would like to join us again for another fun-filled day?
Well, you’re in luck! QIPCO British Champions Series will be working with The Pony Club again in 2018, staging fun-filled racedays for all Pony Club Members. Remember, under 18s go FREE!
Come and discover the exciting world of horseracing and become an expert on the thoroughbred breed throughout QIPCO British Champions Series 2018.
Join us on one of two ‘Kickstart’ racedays at either Newmarket Racecourse on Sunday 6th May or Haydock Park Racecourse on Saturday 26th May. Attending a Kickstart day will equip you with all the knowledge you will need to follow an amazing summer of horseracing, plus you will get the chance to try lots of fun activities!
Then join the party in ‘The Fan Zone’ on QIPCO British Champions Day at Ascot Racecourse on Saturday 20th October, when the stars of the Series compete for the most valuable prizes on the biggest stage of all.
Anyone interested in getting more involved with or are keen to get started Pony Racing please contact me at kcwisey@gmail.com. I have years of experience working in racing and have competed in Pony Racing myself.   If I get a positive response and have enough interest I will look in to putting on some ‘introduction to Pony Racing’ clinics for all you thrill seekers out there!
Let me know!
